In the UK, the term Dual or Multiple Exceptionality (DME) is used to describe those who have one or more special educational need or disability and also have high ability (which Potential Plus UK calls High Learning Potential or HLP). Potential Plus UK has produced this fact sheet to inform, support and advise teachers, professionals and parents/carers of DME children. Issues related to educating, parenting and supporting a child with DME are covered in this fact sheet. Treatments for specific special educational needs are covered in other Potential Plus UK Fact Sheets relating to particular diagnoses.
