Understanding, Diagnosing, and Coping with Slow Processing Speed By Steven M. Butnik, Ph.D.

From Twice-Exceptional Newsletter: Understanding, Diagnosing, and Coping with Slow Processing Speed By Steven M. Butnik, Ph.D. 

“Twice-Exceptional” refers to gifted children with learning problems:

Coupled with high intelligence, these children also may have one or more learning disabilities, attention deficit, autism spectrum disorder, emotional or behavior problems, or other types of learning challenges. From (What is 2e?)

I can relate to this. In any case, those who have intellectual gifts can benefit greatly from Dr. Butnik’s article, which enables parents to help their “2e” children negotiate the major hurdles they face in achieving as much as they can (and want) to accomplish, intellectually. 

Of course, the ultimate goal Orthodox Christians seek is not intellectual accomplishment, professional success, and riches, which are most highly prized in “modern” secular society, but loving union with God – theosis, which will be for all of us an eternal quest to draw ever closer and closer to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, with ever-increasing joy and longing.
