This research on twice-exceptional students in Dubai schools reveal several key insights into the challenges and opportunities of integrating 2e students into educational settings in mainstream schools in Dubai. The research highlights the importance of addressing misconceptions and stereotypes about twice-exceptional students, as well as providing adequate resources and support for their unique needs, and establishing well defined policies to support these students. Additionally, the research underscores the importance of collaboration and communication among educators and professionals, as well as cultural competence and sensitivity in working with diverse student populations. The main research question is to examine to what extent do mainstream schools in Dubai show readiness to integrate ‘Twice Exceptional’ policy into their system. Based on the findings, the researcher concludes that there is a need to develop a clear instructional policy for schools to include twice exceptional students, as there is no such policy yet.
