      I am looking for resources related to 504 plan accommodations typically offered in high school. For reference, I have a 14 year old, highly gifted daughter with ADHD, anxiety, and executive functioning deficits. She has struggled in 8th grade this year as she lacks the motivation to complete homework-especially if she considers it “busy work.” She is currently in honors classes and receiving support in a learning center, but only because I pushed for more support. The school psychologist recommended pulling my daughter from honors classes instead. As if that was going to solve the “busy work” problem!

      Here’s a great list of potential accommodations for high school students:

      I challenge you to not think of your daughter’s struggles to complete school work as a “lack of motivation.” Kids want to do well, and they do well if they can. Executive functioning deficits often look like a lack of motivation. But the ADHD brain is motivated differently:

      The Social Emotional Needs of the Gifted website is also pretty useful.
