"Bright Not Broken"

About the book

Bright Not Broken sheds new light on this vibrant population by identifying who twice exceptional children are and taking an unflinching look at why they’re stuck.

The first work to boldly examine the widespread misdiagnosis and controversies that arise from our current diagnostic system, it serves as a call to action call for parents and professionals to question why our mental health and education systems continue to fail some of our brightest children.

Too often, these kids are caught in an endless cycle of chasing diagnostic labels, being prescribed dangerous medications, and are never given the tools to fully develop their gifts and talents.

An added word...

Yesterday, I attended a presentation by the authors and most certainly identify with the expressed perspectives. APOGEE Learning - - indeed shares in this mission of advocacy on behalf of our special children. Since 1983, APOGEE Learning has served the needs of 'Twice-Exceptional Children.' Self awareness, self knowledge, self mastery, along with appropriate supports for both the academics and the arts, have brought ongoing documented success to 'Twice-Exceptional Children.'
