1 Christina is a nine year old in Mrs. Guillermo's third grade class who has been  referred for a dual exceptionality of ADD/Gifted.  She is an incredibly verbal child whose  academic studies are suffering not due largely to problems with impulsivity and  attention.  There are also other areas of concern due to symptoms that seem to be  attributable to this twice-exceptionality. In the school environment Christina has no patience for tasks that she sees as  irrelevant and spends a good deal of time off task daydreaming.  She will begin tasks  upon request, but often seems to either fail to complete them, lose them after  completion or forget to turn them in. She often has several projects going at once and  cannot seem to stay with one project long enough to see it to completion before shifting  to work on another.  Though not aggressive or defiant, Christina is a very opinionated child who  questions everything (including rules and boundaries) and often seems to have a  unique perspective on the world around her.  This propensity to question can  sometimes become disruptive to the class when Christina cannot restrain herself from  interrupting.  Disciplining Christina is delicate because she is very sensitive to criticism  and her self - esteem is easily damaged.

2 Socially Christina seems immature as compared to her peers and often has  difficulty relating to them. Though intellectually she seems ahead of them, emotionally  Christina does not seem as mature as her peers.  This makes it even more difficult for  relationships to form.  Rather than seeking to form relationships with her peers,  Christina seems to prefer to constantly seek the companionship and attention of her  teachers.  Christina's parents report home similar behavior at home. Rules and boundaries  are pressed at every turn, though seldom to the point of defiance.  Christina is seldom  still and she often flits from one activity to another, starting several things but seldom  finishing anything except those of particular interest.  Christina's parent's report that  though she makes repeated attempts at keeping her things organized  she inevitably  loses things needed for activities at school or home as she is distracted from the task at  hand. Christina's parents have had her privately IQ tested; the result was 130, well  within the gifted and talented range.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
