Support Through Education

Is your gifted child struggling to reach their potential?

Are some things too easy while others are too hard?

The Bentley Center was founded to help parents and their gifted or
twice-exceptional children thrive through connection, education, and wellness.

Introducing our Exceptional Learning Program

For learners who thrive on taking a deep dive into special interests, explore our courses in areas ranging from Robotics and Math in Nature to Kidpreneurs.

What is Twice-Exceptional?

Twice-Exceptional (2E) children have high abilities in certain areas and have one or more disabilities. A student’s disabilities may mask high abilities, and their high abilities often mask disabilities.

Meet Gayle Bentley

Gayle Bentley is a mother to three amazing neurodivergent sons. She has taught in the public school system for twenty-three years and is currently pursuing her doctoral degree in Cognitive Diversity in Education.

"Gayle has been immeasurably helpful to our family. In trying to figure out the perfect placement for our neurodivergent son who did not thrive in a typical classroom setting, we were overwhelmed and feeling defeated. Gayle was motivating, encouraging, and efficient in directing us to the resources and school learning environment that was right for him. Her expertise and passion for neurodivergent children is inspiring and motivating. Our son would not be where he is emotionally or academically without her guidance. We are forever thankful."

Anna Goodman Client of The Bentley Center

"Gayle's experience, gained through decades of teaching students through the formative years of their lives, has made her an expert at identifying the educational needs of children. Her approach of looking at the entire child, their thought processes, their interests, their passions, their difficulties, and their capabilities sets her apart from many professionals in the field of education. Gayle's experiences as an educator, student, and mother make her uniquely qualified to guide parents to choices that will make a positive impact on the lives of their children."
