Twice Exceptional Children’s Advocacy, Inc. (TECA) was founded in 2003 by a group of parents seeking to identify, support and unite twice-exceptional (2e) students and their families. Twice-exceptional students are those who are gifted with some form of disability or learning challenge. TECA’s mission is to help parents understand what twice-exceptionality is and help them identify whether their children are 2e. TECA assists parents in finding and advocating for the education and resources their children require. TECA provides a strong, vibrant, accepting community for 2e children and their families.
