Parenting --Teens/Test taking
I have a teen boy, age almost 16yrs. He is a really good child: usually agreeable and usually willing to help. He still likes to talk to me about stuff going on. He has been diagnosed w/ ADHD (since about 6th grade)
He is not a super motivated student. On average, his HW grades are about B-C, Tests, however, are D-F on average. He has been looked at for learning disabilities w/ the finding that he does not have them. His comprehension was tested at the low end of average last yr. After a meeting w/ the school psychologist, counselor and most of his teachers, they all pretty much saw that my son is in a hurry to get done and not really getting the details.
This continues this sophomore year. How can he be helped with his test taking skills? I am running out of ideas.
I think you may need to do a Google search for an educational specialist in your area. There are going to be skills that your son could incorporate into his test-taking that an expert in the field could give you. I am not an expert in the education field and as such don't really have ideas about test-taking skills sorry...
