About TECA

TECA mission is to help parents understand what twice exceptionality is and help them identify whether their children are 2e. We are here to assist parents in finding and advocating for the education and resources their children require. TECA is working to create a strong, vibrant, accepting community for 2e children and their families. TECA provides parents with a one-stop source for 2e, so they can spend less time searching for information and resources, and more time with their child and family. TECA promotes support for the whole 2e child – for both their special gifts and talents in all domains, and for their learning differences or disabilities. We also offer support groups and community online forums for parents of 2e children. TECA makes available a wide range of offerings to help make parenting a 2e child easier.
