The right side of your brain is in a panic. It broke into a cold sweat just thinking about taking a test. The right side hates multiple choice, short answer, true false questions and essays. It’s completely contrary to the way the right side of the brain works.
Parents as Advocates
So you have this great kid. He’s dynamic, smart, fun, curious, creative, and you love the way his mind works! Then he goes to school and they’re not seeing the same things you are. You hear he’s not paying attention. Not applying himself. Not keeping up. Not behaving. Then you hear – maybe it’s ADD ?
Do you worry about your child being discouraged? Do you dread homework and tests as much or more than he does? Don’t worry! Your child is just fine. Your child may be a visual learner and school is not teaching or measuring the things he is good at.
