Underachievement and Selective Achievement

A common misconception is that all gifted learners achieve at high levels, and that if a student does not achieve (underachiever) or achieves only when working at selective tasks (selective achiever) he or she cannot be “gifted.” We know that many gifted learners do not reach their full potential, and there are many reasons for this.  Our professionals will help you understand the how and why of gifted underachievement and suggest strategies for addressing the needs of the underachieving and selectively achieving students.
