Supporting Parents of 2e Kids in School – 2021

with Debbie Reber, M.A. & Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz


Neurodivergent kids of all ages will be heading back to school in a few short weeks, and many of their parents are trying to make sense of this year’s new normal. Parents of kids who are 2E (twice exceptional) are constantly seeking a balance between playing to their child’s gifts and getting support for their challenges. When you add in kids’ nervous systems that have been taxed to the max over the course of the pandemic, there is more than enough anxiety and stress to go around. 

In this fascinating conversation, Debbie Steinberg-Kuntz and Debbie Reber discuss Polyvagal Theory, “forced family fun,” and the importance of prioritizing as you guide your child to prepare for the coming school year.
