Some of the brightest children in the nation often go unrecognized because they fall into a group known as “twice exceptional” or “2e.” In addition to their exceptional gifts, these children are also diagnosed with a disability (commonly Autism spectrum disorders or ADHD). Their disability diagnosis often leads parents and educators to overlook their gifts and talents. When the sole focus is on the disability, twice exceptional kids are not given the tools they need to unlock their gifts and reach their full potential. In Bright Not Broken, authors Diane M. Kennedy, Rebecca S. Banks (mothers of twice-exceptional children), and Temple Grandin (a highlight accomplished twice exceptional author, professor and advocate), draw from their own experiences and from painstaking research to offer groundbreaking insight and practical strategies to those seeking to help 2e kids achieve their full potential.

 Bright Not Broken examines the under-identified population of twice exceptional children, and the problems in the current diagnostic system that lead to widespread misdiagnosis and controversies. Above all, the book focuses on what can be done to help twice exceptional children. The authors present a whole child model for parents and educators to strengthen and develop a child’s innate gifts while also providing intervention and supports to help them deal with the disability.
