Identification, with Stephen Chou, Psy.D.




Identification for twice-exceptional (2e) is oftentimes enigmatic. Of those who assess children, few are specifically trained to assess in the area of giftedness and twice-exceptionality/multi-exceptionality. Gifted and 2e children often have complex cognitive, academic, emotional, and behavioral profiles that are often misunderstood and misdiagnosed. Uncovering the gifted/2e child’s unique profile is critical for identification of the child’s strengths as well as areas of challenges such that the child is seen and understood.


Stephen H. Chou, Psy.D. is a supervising clinical psychologist in private practice in California and Colorado and the Director of Training and Research at the Summit Center within the San Francisco Bay/LA Area.
