ESE for Children Who are Gifted

In Florida, children who have special learning needs are called exceptional students. Exceptional students include children who are gifted and children who have disabilities. Children who are considered gifted are those children with superior intellectual development and who are capable of high performance.  The purpose of exceptional student education (ESE) is to help each child with an exceptionality to progress in public school and prepare for life after school. ESE services include specially designed instruction to meet the unique needs of the exceptional student. There is no charge for these special services.

Sometimes gifted students can also have significant learning challenges, and may be considered "twice exceptional," meaning they are gifted and have a disability.
