Self-efficacy the academic concept of self pertains to one's abilities to successfully complete a task or goal (Bandura 1997). Research into self-efficacy has previously investigated efficacy of gifted and non-gifted individuals but rarely twice-exceptional children and adolescents. The goal of this presentation is to utilise the four sources of self-efficacy (past experience, verbal persuasion, vicarious reinforcement, and physiological reactions) to create and share efficacy builders, activities known to raise self-efficacy in twice exceptional learners.
