An Introduction to Dual or Multiple Exceptionality (DME)

Children who have high learning potential, (gifted/more able) combined with a special educational need or disability are often described as having Dual or Multiple Exceptionality (DME). Children with this profile have their own distinct challenges and need extra support from family and teachers.

Find out more about Dual or Multiple Exceptionality in this Potential Plus UK webinar for parents which ran on 3rd February 2021, with funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund. In this video Natalie Jensen, one of Potential Plus UK’s Education Advisers, offers an introduction to Dual and Multiple Exceptionality.

If, at the end of this workshop, you want to discover more about Dual or Multiple Exceptionality, then read more in our free DME factsheet and discover how to support your child with their executive function skills (the cognitive processes that regulate behaviour, help us to make decisions and achieve goals) in our parent session on Monday 15th February, 8pm on Executive Function Skills in Children, run by Andrea Anguera, Potential Plus UK’s Senior Assessor.
