Even brilliant kids have
learning struggles—here’s why
It’s one of the great mysteries of childrearing: Your very smart kid’s intelligence isn’t reflected in his or her report card. How can such a brilliant brain bring home B’s? (Or C’s, or D’s, or worse?)
Most of the time, when kids struggle in school, it’s due to a cognitive weakness. This means that even a brilliant teen who has strong auditory processing, visual processing, memory, processing speed, and logic & reasoning can still struggle if his or her attention skills are weak, making it difficult to focus on the teacher or the task.
Here’s another example: If a child is really smart but struggles with slow processing speed, he or she will take longer than others to complete tests, take notes, and read and memorize information.
The first step to determining which brain skills are weak is to get a cognitive skills assessment. Once you know what skill or skills need to be strengthened, a personal brain trainer can customize a program for your child.
