I am the mother of two 2E or Twice Exceptional girls, ages 13 and 10. Both are gifted, but struggle with learning differences.
Lily, my oldest, has Sensory Integration issues and ADHD which impairs her Executive Functioning and makes her extremely disorganized. Because of her Executive Function deficits, Lily also has trouble with written expression and emotional regulation.
My youngest, who wants to be known as Zoolander, has Sensory Processing issues and highly-compensated dyslexia, which means she’s a good reader, but struggles with written expression and math calculation.
I’m not an expert, but am trying to teach myself enough to advocate for them at school and eventually teach them to advocate for themselves.
