Overview

"You can imagine what my child's room looked like: clothes on the floor, dresser draws open with clothes half hanging out of them, and toys spread all over the floor."

"Jill is given an assignment on Monday that is due on Friday. The problem is that despite repeated nagging, she won't start it until Thursday night."

Organizing Ther Disorganized Child finally answers the parents' question, "How can I help my child get organized without waging a battle?" This essential toolkit for parents and educators factors organizational styles into the equation, and offers effective strategies that deliver amazing long-term results.

Renowned ADHD expert Dr. Martin Kutscher and coach Marcella Moran explain the roots of our children's organizational problems, and the parents' role in fixing them. They outline different organizational styles used by different students. (Not all kids organize the same way!) Kutscher and Moran outline exactly what school materials to buy, and how to set up the study area. They provide a step-by-step plan for an organizational system including:

o Refining morning and nighttime routines

o Getting the correct work home

o Planning the work, and getting it back to where it belongs

o Tips for reading and note taking

o Study and test taking skills

o Learning how to ask the right questions

Organizing the Disorganized Child is an essential toolkit that belongs on every parent's shelf.

Early Praise for Organizing the Disorganized Child

"A superb book! Blessedly brief, pointedly practical, and clear as glass, this book will help any child, parent, or teacher who reads it. Step by step, the authors, who truly know their subject, lead the reader through a method that can't help but succeed. This book meets an urgent need. I will be referring my patients to it."

- Edward Hallowell, M.D., co-author of Driven to Distraction and Superparenting for ADD

"Organizing the Disorganized Child is a long overdue manual that strives to make life easier on families with children with ADHD. Unlike other books that offer a menu of one-size-fits-all strategies, this book digs deeper and helps parents to understand the root causes of their particular child's disorganization...This book is a MUST HAVE for all parents of children with or without ADHD!"

- Nancy A. Ratey, author of The Disorganized Mind

"Organizing the Disorganized Child is a breath of fresh air. Straightforward, practical, and most important, providing strategies and ideas that any parent - even the disorganized - can easily implement. Rather than wait till some children struggle I suggest that Organizing the Disorganized Child be essential reading for parents of all entering first graders."

- Sam Goldstein, Ph.D., Co-author of Raising a Self-disciplined Child

Editorial Reviews

Betty B. Osman
“An easy-to-read book full of practical information, written with humor and sensitivity. The authors understand children and the organizational problems that challenge many families. Every child, even those who perform well, will benefit from the organization strategies recommended in this comprehensive book.”
Barbara Firestone
“This practical ‘how to’ book is an invaluable tool to help parents effectively guide their children in the development of organizational skills. The authors have translated their impressive expertise, wisdom, and insights into a remarkably comprehensive and refreshingly direct step by step approach.”
Ellen Galinsky
“By revealing how the root causes of disorganization are not the fault of the parents, the teachers, or even the kids—but have to do with how the frontal lobes of the brain develop—this book will guide us to much more constructive solutions.”

    Great practical help!

    A teaching colleague lent me this book as a resource to help our students. I found myself taking notes to apply the tips in my own family as well. It has been four months and the difference is huge, especially in organizing materials, backpacks and planners. Now I am buying my own copy so I can start another round of improvements.
