2 Alternative education options for gifted and twice exceptional children

For many years, pathways have existed for gifted and twice-exceptional children to pursue alternative education options, such as Beach High School (http://beachhigh.education/) in California, USA, and the proliferation of micro-schools catering to 2e children (Rivera 2016). Yet it is only very recently that such options have become more widespread in Australia. This presentation will posit that with the alternative education options, the stark divide between homeschooling and school has been replaced with a broad spectrum of different options. Many of these options, such as online remote learning, have become a real possibility in recent years.
