Attention and Organization Issues


Many gifted children struggle with attention problems and organization skills because they can be abstract thinkers and get bored easily. Education experts have found that it's more common for boys to be disorganized and distracted. Fortunately, there are tips and tools you can use to help your struggling gifted student — boy or girl. Get to know your child's particular pitfalls and talk with his teacher about problems and possible solutions.
