Organizing the Disorganized Child

Organizing the disorganized child: Simple strategies to succeed in school is written by Martin L Kutscher, pediatrician, and Marcella Moran, a licensed psychotherapist and educational consultant. The book begins with an explanation of "how my kid [got] into this mess" (key: the natural development of the frontal lobe), the role of the parent and tips on how to approach your child about the subject. The following chapters provide guidelines to being proactive in creating an organization system in a positive, supportive manner: setting up supplies, tracking multiple classes and teachers, making calendars, establishing morning and nighttime routines, visually organizing school notes, etc. Though aimed at the general populace, this book is especially useful for children with AD/HD and related disorders.
