Publisher's Summary

The Organized Student contains hands-on strategies for teaching your disorganized child how to organize for success in middle school and high school, with special tips for kids with ADD/ADHD and learning disorders.  

The overstuffed backpack, the missing homework, the unused planner, the test he didn't know about. Sound familiar? When the disorganized child meets the departmentalized structure of middle school, everything can fall apart. Even the academically successful child will start to falter if she misses deadlines, loses textbooks, or can't get to class on time.  

This practical book is full of hands-on strategies for helping parents identify and teach organizational skills. Educational consultant Donna Goldberg has developed these methods by working with hundreds of students.

Great tips for organizing!

Many of these tips should be considered obvious or common sense, but believe it or not, I bet most people aren't utilizing organization the way they should. This book will not only help you with your own child, but as a teacher, parent, or even yourself. I loved it!
