From the Publisher

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.
