One of my daughters is naturally very bright. But in 3rd or 4th grade, we noticed that she was not able to appropriately deal with challenges. If she didn’t know an answer or if she had any challenge learning something, she would burst into tears. This embarrassed her and frustrated us. Our NACD evaluator assessed her processing to be low and gave us a personal program that included lots of processing activities. When her processing improved, we saw a correlated improvement with her coping and academic skills. She is now graduating from high school with high grades and a strong recommendation from her employer.
