To compile the 2017 Brain Balance State of Homework Report, the data scientists at Brain Balance [https://www.brainbalancecenters.com/]—a holistic, drug-free approach to addressing behavioral, social, or learning difficulties in kids—surveyed 2,000 American parents about their children's homework habits.

>> KIDS WITH DIFFICULTIES ARE 3X AS LIKELY TO HATE HOMEWORK

31% of parents of students with difficulties (e.g. ADHD, Asperger Syndrome, autism, PDD-NOS, dyslexia, etc.) say their kids hate homework, compared to only 13% of students without difficulties. This translates to 3X as much fighting: 27% of the former parents have fought with their child about homework, compared to 8% of the latter parents.

>> STUDENTS WITH DIFFICULTIES STRUGGLE WITH HOMEWORK 6X AS MUCH

According to their parents, 24% of kids with difficulties struggle with homework, while only 4% of students without difficulties have trouble completing it.

>> TEENAGERS WITH DIFFICULTIES HAVE THE MOST TROUBLE WITH HOMEWORK

28% of teenagers with difficulties struggle to complete their homework, compared to 10% of teenagers without difficulties. The number is 25% and 8%, respectively, for students ages 5-13, and 16% and 2%, respectively, for young children under age 5. 

>> ALL STUDENTS STRUGGLE WITH THE SAME SUBJECTS

Students with and without difficulties both struggle with math the most (24% and 8% respectively). Next come English (18%, 3%), history (14%, 3%), and science (11%, 2%).
