Since 2007, I have led a Denver-area support group for parents, teachers, and caregivers of Twice-Exceptional children — people who are both highly gifted and have multiple learning differences. Many are on the autism spectrum, others have a laundry list of diagnoses, and still others fall into that category of quirky wiring. “Children” is a misnomer, as the group has been going on so long that many of the original students are now adults, and some of those parents are still regulars at the meetings. That longevity had provided a wealth of knowledge about things to try.
We meet monthly, on the second Wednesdays, at 11:30am. Since Covid, the meetings have been virtual. The basic format is that the attendees discuss whatever the current challenge is, and if others have suggestions, they offer them. Common topics of discussion include school accommodations, mental health, and resources.
