    Default 2E Kidz Compelling Needs

    Hi,

    I am mom to an 11 yr old 2E boy; smart as can be; he hates school and also has learning challenges as well as ADD. In spite of the idea that there are just different minds and labeling is not helpful; sure, it's not helpful if that is the entire way one views their child; but it sure helps to have a label to better help your child know that the trouble they are having is not because they are doing something wrong; but because their brain learns differently and causes them some difficulties. Labels can sometimes help us categorize a group of challenges to make them more manageable; like the symptoms of ADD; when we see them, we can understand that's part of a certain group of symptoms; not a child just misbehaving. For us, understanding that a child can be really smart and have learning challenges that make it hard for him in school; has been very helpful.

    Hi akidzmom, glad to have you here. Best wishes with your boy, sounds like you all are doing o.k. so far. Be sure to check out the NJ state forum. It 's a great way to find other folks in your area, make new friends, and find out things going on in your state.
    Joyfully,
    Jackie
