||The Myth of Laziness
||The Myth of Laziness, by Dr. Mel Levine, discusses neurodevelopmental dysfunctions that can cause "output failure" (commonly referred to as laziness) and shows parents how to nurture their children's strengths and improve their classroom productivity. It focuses on how correcting these problems in childhood will help children live a fulfilling and productive adult life. Parents who are told their gifted child is lazy or not living up to his/her potential can learn more about what laziness actually is, what causes it, and how to overcome it to avoid future problems, including in adulthood.
