Why Bright Kids Get Poor Grades

Why Bright Kids Get Poor Grades

And What You Can Do about It (3rd Edition)



Sylvia B. Rimm, Ph.D.


Four-Time Award-Winner!
Millions of gifted children fail to reach their potential—something Dr. Sylvia Rimm calls “underachievement syndrome.” Drawing on both clinical research and years of experience counseling families of gifted children, Dr. Rimm has developed a “Trifocal Model” to help parents and teachers work together to get students back on track. It is effective for a wide range of students, from preschool through college. Dr. Rimm’s practical, six-step program provides everything you need to know to turn your child’s underachievement into success.
