A process that takes into account twice exceptional and economically disadvantaged children. Hi, I don't understand what "twice" is doing here :) Does it refer to taking into account meaning take more into account, or to the state of the children, or something else. Need your opinions. Thanks in advance

Like Michael, I originally thought it was a mistake. But then I decided to search for your phrase, and found that 'twice exceptional' appears to be an educational jargon phrase (and IMHO typically obfuscational American) . It refers to "intellectually gifted children who have some form of disability". My quote is from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twice_exceptional which has a lot more information.

I think it's a mistake and "twice" should be "both". I hope this was not written by a native English-speaker!
