Motivation Problem or Hidden Disability?

So often we are told "your child's so smart - she could do that if only she'd try" or "he has a motivation problem".. The children in question may get sullen or angry or depressed; they may cry or insist that "I can't" or "it's too boring". As parents, it hurts us to hear these things about our children, to question our parenting skills, and wonder why our children are not cooperating in school. But there's often more here than meets the eyes.

Enrichment is NOT about Worksheets | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it

Where I have struggled the most is with students “who already know the material.” These students need enriched – they need to be pushed to the next level. Not necessarily to the 6th grade indicators but deeper into 5th grade indicators
