This summer I received this email from a high schooler who is going into her senior year:
“I’ve struggled in school since before I can even remember. Now going into my senior year, I still have so many unanswered questions.
How was it that I was able to teach myself to be proficient in 3 different instruments but I have trouble utilizing basic math skills?
I was tested for ADD in 7th grade. The test results clearly showed that my ADD consists of issues with execution, basic math skills, and processing ability. However, my comprehension skills were in the high 90th percentile (not sure of the exact number).
I approached the person who tested me with the idea that I might fall under the 2E category. She told me that my comprehension skills would’ve placed me into that category, but I missed it by a few points. Is it worth getting retested?
I’m no longer satisfied with “not being smart enough”.
I can give you additional reasons why I believe I’m 2E. I mapped it out in a notebook. Thank you Ayla”
Wow – it’s rare for a high schooler to be this introspective! In this vlog I respond to Ayla, discussing all sorts of interrelated topics to consider:
- Attention/processing, working memory
- The 2e discrepancy
- Gap years
- Learning over grades
- What matters?
- Asking for help
- Personal growth
- And Play
