I will write more about his survey later, but here is the nitty gritty.
In just two weeks, this online group of parents of twice exceptional children in New York City managed to have over 500 people respond to our survey. I am so proud to be a member here.
I think the parent comment quote on the title page shows our urgency and why we are so fed up and able to get this done so quickly. I firmly believe this is something that is not only going to help 2e children but will help others as well.
“ There isn't currently a place for students who have disabilities but are acceleratedacademically. This results in many challenging behaviors for my son. If we weren't sendin him to private school, I believe that he would be on a pathway to frequent suspensions. Thi feels like a ticket to the schools-to-prison pipeline for students whose families cannot affor private school, services, and attorneys. Teachers working with G & T classes (my so attended one a few years back) do not have special education training. Special educatio classes cannot differentiate up for gifted students. ”
