Smart But Scattered: The Revolutionary "Executive Skills" Approach to Helping Kids Reach Their Potential
Paperback - English

Kids who lag behind lack crucial skills required to execute such tasks as getting organized, staying focused, and controlling emotions. Here, the authors present an innovative program to strengthen kids' abilities to plan ahead, follow through, and get things done. Includes 40 reproducibles. ...There's nothing more frustrating than watching your bright, talented son or daughter struggle with everyday tasks like finishing homework, putting away toys, or following instructions at school. Your "smart but scattered" 4- to 13-year-old might also have trouble coping with disappointment or managing anger. Drs. Peg Dawson and Richard Guare have great news: there's a lot you can do to help. The latest research in child development shows that many kids who have the brain and heart to succeed lack or lag behind in crucial "executive skills"--the fundamental habits of mind required for getting organized, staying focused, and controlling impulses and emotions. Learn easy-to-follow steps to identify your child's strengths and weaknesses, use activities and techniques proven to boost specific skills, and problem-solve daily routines. Helpful worksheets and forms can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size. Small changes can add up to big improvements--this empowering book shows how.
