Executive Functioning and the Gifted
CGCC is partnering with Midwest Academy for Gifted Education (MAGE) to present this free series.
Midwest Academy for Gifted Education
1164 N. Milwaukee Ave.
Chicago, IL 60642
Your brilliant child can’t remember to turn in work, finish work, or break the work down into manageable parts that are not overwhelming. Maybe they flunked their executive functioning task on the neuropsych assessment or, paradoxically, they are multiple standard deviations above the norm in that area and yet… and yet it’s not online in real life. What to do? Maybe transitions are a mess. Maybe you either have to provide pacing or nothing gets done, and you don’t know if they’ll grow into it or if they will need help. Study habits and skills have varying quality. Maybe, getting going is hard, or staying on tasks, or remembering. Your child needs help - learn about options about how to support your child the best.
