• HIGH SCHOOL Discussion/Support Group for Underachieving Teens

    George Mason Enterprise Center

    If you are interested in a face-to-face discussion group with other high school students who--like YOU--are smart but perhaps not teacher-pleasers, or have trouble remembering what teachers said, or are somewhat right-brained, imaginative or creative, or have trouble with homework, are thought of as "weird" (like Leonardo di Vinci, Einstein, and Lady GaGa were), or whatever, you will like this group. I'm a retired teacher who misses having students. I'll get our discussions started, then listen. You can discuss your ideas and/or listen to other students who may be like you in a lot of ways. This group may at times be academic, social, philosophical, peer supportive, hysterically funny, or a combination. All positive! Critical thinking! Creative Problem Solving! No whining, but a little complaining is OK. It's all good! These monthly meetings on the 1st Sunday of every month are sponsored by the CHADD (Children/Adults with ADD/ADHD) of Northern Virginia organization. Consequently, some of the attendees will have ADD/ADHD as well as being very intelligent. CHADD support groups are FREE and open to HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS To RSVP to this meetup, see the BrainRelief website at www.BrainRelief.org, or call[masked]
