Scientists who study child development have recently found that kids who are "smart but scattered" lack or lag behind in crucial executive skillsa "the core, brain-based habits of mind required to "execute" tasks like getting organized, staying focused, and controlling emotions. Drawing on this revolutionary discovery, school psychologist Peg Dawson and neuropsychologist Richard Guare have developed an innovative program that parents and teachers can use to strengthen kidsa (TM) abilities to plan ahead, be efficient, follow through, and get things done. Smart but Scattered provides ways to assess childrena (TM)s strengths and weaknesses and offers guidance on day-to-day issues like following instructions in the classroom, doing homework, completing chores, reducing performance anxiety, and staying cool under pressure. Small steps add up to big improvements, enabling these kids to build the skills they need to live up to their full potential. More than 40 reproducibles are included.

My son's doctor recommended this book to help us with his ADHD and Asperger's, but I am finding that it is a great tool for any parent with any child who needs a little boost in the "executive skills" areas they are weak in. For that matter, it is great for adults to evaluate their own strengths and weaknesses in order to help your children and yourself.

A pretty good book and is sorted by different ages which helps. This was recommended by one of the professions working with my son. I am sad to say that a lot of it is repetitive to things I have heard before but some is new and I like that it will hopefully help for years to come with the age range.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

Bought this book to teach my children about skills such as initiation, perseverance, and organization. I think it will give the balance needed for true life success in addition to their intelligence. Advice is step by step and many forms given to actually implement ideas, rewards, and consequences. Leaves you with no questions as to what you can do and what you should expect as a parent, but there are a lot of pages to read so be patient.

This book has provided the family with suggestions for helping our grandson/son develop life long skills in multiple areas including being able to make and keep friends as well as organizational, emotional, flexibility skills just to mention a few. Examples in each area are clearly laid out in ready to use fashion.
