Help Your Struggling Gifted Child Avoid the Summer Slide and Improve Their Reading Comprehension
Gifted students who struggled with reading comprehension used to be at or above grade level. Now more gifted students than ever are at or below grade level.
To make matters worse, gifted students who struggle with reading are often slow readers. This causes great anxiety when they are assigned long reading assignments.
Like Edison, Einstein and Disney, the struggling gifted student’s biggest challenge is they do not excel the way they are being taught.

The good news with struggling gifted students is that:
- There are the students who often make dramatic gains in the shortest time frame
- They often learn differently and respond very well when taught to their strengths
- The attention, eye-teaming and anxiety challenges are often addressable
- We have had excellent results with gifted students:
- Helping a number of 2nd and 3rd graders who were asked to leave the gifted program do very well
- Helping several 4th graders do very well, and some go from above average students to be near the top of their class at one of the most prestigious schools in the area with perfect SAT scores
- Helping many middle school students make dramatic gains in months
- Helping a high school student reading at 150 words per minute improve to 350 words per minute in less than a month
