New Grant from the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation

logo.jkcfThe Jack Kent Cooke Foundation awarded a grant to the Belin-Blank Center that will provide scholarships to twice-exceptional students who attend the Center’s summer programs.  The scholarship will ensure that twice-exceptional students have access to enrichment and accelerative programming.  The grant also supports two graduate assistants and partial  support for a licensed psychologist to work with the summer program faculty and staff to enhance their professional development related to twice-exceptionality, as well as to make the necessary accommodations in the classroom and the residence halls.

As part of this effort we are updating the National Institute for Twice-Exceptionality (NITE) website and revising two important publications, the Packet of Information for Families (PIF) and the Packet of Information for Professionals (PIP).
