Full Synopsis

An honest, up-close look at what it’s like to be—or to be the parent or teacher of—a gifted young person coming to terms with a learning difference. This documentary follows the personal journeys of a group of high school students who have been identified as “twice exceptional” gifted or highly gifted individuals with learning disabilities or differences. Featuring thought-provoking interviews with students, parents, teachers, psychologists, and therapists, 2E: Twice Exceptional is essential viewing for anyone interested in understanding where our next generation of “outliers”—geniuses, mavericks, and dreamers—may come from.
