My son has ADHD and is now in grade 4 in a gifted program. Although he has been identified as gifted he is struggling immensely in school. He continues to fall behind on assignments, forgets his work, has terrible difficulty in prioritizing tasks and seems completely out of touch with what is required of him at school. I have had several meetings so far with his teacher and other school staff and I am at a loss for how to help him. His work load in gifted his very heavy and a lot of what he has to do is project based and self directed. I’m not sure this is the program for him (public school system), but I don’t want him to leave a gifted program to go back to regular class, as I don’t think this is the answer either. My son is not on any medication. Can anyone relate? Does anyone have any advice?
