My Child Won’t Do Homework! What Can I Do?

August 17, 2009

Dear Friends

The next Twice Exceptional Support Group Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Please note that the meeting topic has changed from the original schedule. We will let you know when we can fit in the assistive technology topic!

This topic for this meeting is in response to a special request during the August meeting. As they contemplate the upcoming school year, parents are asking how mental health issues can affect their gifted/twice-exceptional child’s homework performance, and what strategies can help families to respond to these issues? Dr. Agnes Meyo will speak on this topic and will respond to your concerns. Feel free to send specific questions to us in advance! Specific issues we hope to discuss:

  • Sensory Integration Disorder
  • Auditory Processing Disorder
  • Learning Disabilities
  • ADHD
  • Bipolar
  • Asperger’s Disorder
  • Depression and/or Anxiety
  • Graphomotor Issues
