my son who has since graduated was like that from about 5th grad up until 12th grade, where he ended up going to an outlet school and was able to work on his own ability level. where he got straight A’s something that he has never been able to get.
My daughter who is going into fourth grade has Inattentive ADD. She is a very hands on learner she cant sit for more then 5 mins at a time. she is currently on an est plan and when I try and push for a 504 plan i am told she doesn’t meet the criteria because she is above average and there isn’t anything in my state for gifted or excelled students. yet she is getting bored in class and is losing focus quicker. but because her grades are not being effected by the school standards then there isnt anything they will do. anyone else have this issue?
