The true face of the multi-exceptional student

The true face of the multi-exceptional student Removing the Masks of Multi-Exceptionalities Pushing, fighting, scrabbling, reaching… I can’t breathe… I can’t escape! That sounds like a scene from the latest thriller to hit movie theaters, but it’s not! That’s what it’s like inside the mind of a multi-exceptional student. I have a special treat in today’s review of “Removing the Masks of Multi-Exceptionalities”. In this course, you’ll benefit from first-hand experiences of a mother/daughter team who remove the mask that often hides the true experience of a 2E or multi-exceptional learner.
