Global nomads, expats, third culture kids; for children growing up in the context of international schools as citizens of the world who are also experiencing giftedness and disability, does twice exceptionality = third culture²?  Can 2E be more difficult to detect or confounded due to cultural and language differences? Are transitions more problematic? How does the international school context and curriculum impact on provision so that the giftedness can flourish? Through case studies, this workshop will present opportunities to discuss the use of a strength based approach in curriculum with a focus on social-emotional development for students experiencing twice exceptionality in a third culture. Participants are invited to bring their own case studies for workshopping and sharing.
