The participants at the Johns Hopkins gathering concluded that 2e students do, in fact, exist but are often overlooked when assessed for either giftedness or learning disabilities LDs.
In the intervening years, the concept of the 2e student has become commonly accepted among education researchers.
Many books have been written on the subject, articles appear regularly in journals, and national education conferences focusing on either LDs or giftedness consistently include at least one session on the 2e student.
Research has produced a generally accepted definition of the 2e student and the realization that 2e students require a unique combination of educational programs, enrichment, and counseling support.

He narrowly missed score cutoffs for gifted kindergarten programs and was rejected by numerous private schools for being disrespectful at interviews and disobedient during group activities. His public school kindergarten teacher tried engaging Simon by giving him extra homework; but Simon had trouble with everything from transitions, to standing in line, to the curriculum itself, which was several grades below his abilities.
On the playground, he was reprimanded for telling the other kids he was a monster.The sample for this research comprised 15 currently enrolled college or university students with learning disabilities.
