Online Help to Improve Your Child’s Organization

pencils

Organization of homework and schoolwork is a common difficulty for children. The demands from school become increasingly problematic as they get older, and some kids simply can’t keep up – often not because they don’t want to, but because their skills don’t match the demands. Unlike a video game where one can’t move up to the next level until an earlier level has been completed, the skills to be organized and to apply these capacities to the demands of the classroom often do not follow a steady progression.

In my work as a child clinical psychologist, I see many kids for the first time when they are entering middle school, simply because their organizational skills are not adequate to keep up with homework and assignments from six different teachers. It is common for them to forget to do homework, not have the materials necessary to study for a test, or not understand an assignment. Most of these kids have always been motivated and “smart” enough to keep up with the demands of elementary school, where knowledge and following directions were adequate to get good grades.

If your child is having difficulty in these areas, he or she would benefit from involvement in our LearningWorks LIVE program. To prepare yourself for this, we suggest you read a couple of articles to learn more about this topic:
