Continuum of Services for
Twice-Exceptional Learners

These requirements include access to a continuum of services to meet their diverse needs which require a variety of educational services. These may include:

  • General education services with collaborative support from gifted and special education professionals
  • General education services combined with a) attendance in a special education program for special education and b) support from gifted education professional
  • General education services combined with a) attendance in a special education program for gifted learners and b) support from special education professional
  • General education services combined with part-time participation in a self-contained special education classroom and some level of gifted education services
  • Full-time participation in a self-contained classroom for twice-exceptional learners

Note: Student-to-teacher ratio becomes lower as students move into more intensive services/locations.
