© The Author(s) 2022.Twice exceptional (2e) individuals are defined as exceptionally talented persons in one or more areas including academic skills, creativity, leadership, and visual arts accompanied by challenges in one or more areas such as reading, writing, and mathematics. This study aimed to present the views on the academic and social-emotional development of a gifted student with learning disabilities. This research was conducted as a case study by using qualitative research methods. The authors conducted semi-structured interviews with the mother, elementary school teacher, special education teacher, and the 2e student himself. The study concluded that the participants emphasized the adaptations that were made in schools for 2e students and the need for support from parents, peers, and teachers for 2e students as well as the necessity for cooperation between school and family.
