Smart but Scattered Kids and Teens

Some students stay positive even when homework is difficult or time-consuming, while other students are annoyed when homework is hard or takes a long time to finish.  Some kids can keep track of their belongings, like books, agenda or sports gear, while other kids misplace their belongings and never seem to have their gym clothes.  Some teens seem to learn from past experience, but others seem to keep making the same mistakes in spite of past consequences.  If you are teaching a “scattered” student who struggles with attention, organizational skills, or impulse control, then Dr. Richard Guare has helpful and concrete advice for you (and parents too).  Dr. Guare is a neuropsychologist with years of experience working with schools to help students who struggle with executive functioning skills like those just mentioned.  He is also the father of a grown son with ADHD, and so he also understands the challenges from a personal perspective.
