Understanding and Addressing Underachievement
Presenters: D. Betsy McCoach and Del Siegle, Professors, University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT

Underachievement is among the most frustrating education issues facing parents. It can limit students’ opportunities for long‐term success and fulfillment and their sense of self-worth. While there is no silver bullet to reverse underachievement, we’ll discuss factors that students and research suggest influence gifted students’ achievement and how parents can promote an achievement attitude.
