A MESSAGE FROM DR. KAREN B. ROGERS PROJECT DIRECTOR

PROJECT2EXCEL was designed to change the way we look for, serve, and support learners who are gifted and also have various additional exceptionalities, including attention deficit disorders, autism spectrum disorders, behavioral and emotional disorders, and learning disabilities. These children are frequently overlooked for gifted services.Results of the 5-year, federally funded, Javits Grant project include:

  • A comprehensive identification protocol for grades K-8
  • Modified gifted curriculum for grades 3-8 in Mathematics and Language Arts
  • A graduate program for teachers
  • A parent education and support model for parents of twice-exceptional children

The outcome of this project is an improved system for supporting and educating twice-exceptional kids so that their academic giftedness can be developed while their learning deficits are addressed through the use of appropriate educational interventions.
