Hello, I'm a new member and I'm disabled myself.
Question: does anyone here know about twice exceptionality? I am a philosophy major right now; in the future, I wish to be a therapist to work with gifted\disabled folks, twice exceptionals, because I see that human services and psychlogy are still in their infancy regarding intellectually gifted disabled folks.
