Gifted ADHD Children
Online classes in middle school
School can be challenging for my ADD daughter. She gets decent grades, overall. She is intelligent. She is motivated. Of course, she’s also inattentive and disorganized. So instead of being an A student, she gets A’s and B’s and C’s. The lower grades are almost always due to losing homework that she has already completed. But it gets lost and not turned in.
So she tried an online class. She LOVES it. She loves the format. It works GREAT for her ADD approach to life. No papers to lose. No forms to take home to get signed and brought back and if you don’t, you lose 10% of your homework grade. None of that silly busy-work that knocks points off each week.
Have any of you experienced this? Does it work better for your ADD child? My kid loves it.
