Underachievement Syndrome:
An Educational Epidemic

Underachievement Syndrome has become an educational epidemic. Many capable children who sit in our classrooms don't work up to their ability. Patterns which cause underachievement take place at home and in the classroom. 

Parents and teachers may overlook or misinterpret the symptoms and may be manipulated by children in ways that accidentally maintain the problems. 

Dr. Rimm's TRIFOCAL Model provides guidelines for accelerating learning, changing expectations, and parent involvement that are an excellent fit for regular or gifted school programs.

This topic as a workshop will involve educators in identifying and planning for an underachieving student. 

As a presentation, Dr. Rimm will focus on ways that teachers or parents can identify the patterns of underachievement and on ways they can help these students in the prevention and cure of Underachievement Syndrome. 

Related materials include the AIM-TO test instrument for identification, the book, Why Bright Kids Get Poor Grades and What You Can Do About It, and the guidebook, Underachievement Syndrome: Causes and Cures.
