Gifted ADHD Children
Highly gifted 4th grader with ADHD
Our ADHD fourth grader has been tested at greater than 99% on IQ tests and is testing at 9th and 10th grade proficiency in math and reading.
According to him, he was given 4th and sometimes 5th grade math this past academic year.
He doesn’t seem to mind at all that he hasn’t had any math challenges this past year (he has admitted that all of his math has been easy and almost always finishes all of his homework in 15 minutes or less).
It pains us to see him not mind getting the challenge that we know his intellect can handle.
We are wondering if any other parents of gifted children have had similar experiences and what they did to ensure their gifted child with ADHD was appropriately challenged - either by working with their school or working with their child at home.
