Common sense strategies for the disorganized child... and most importantly, the focus is on the boring practical everyday strategies that are so obvious to everyone else and so difficult for those who lack the skills. Excellent.

I had high hopes for this book giving me lots to work with. Instead, I found very little of use. It did remind me how to read a chapter in a textbook (captions, photos and boxes first), but there really wasn't anything in it that was new to me, and I would think it wouldn't be new to anyone who has already tried ways to 'organize their child.' I don't have anything better to suggest; I just wasn't that impressed with this offering.

Those who struggle with deficits in organization, difficulty completing and turning in school assignments, tracking assignments, and resultant poor grades will find this book the organizational tool needed to facilitate school success. It is full of helpful solutions for often-experienced school problems, which may exert quite a detrimental effect upon academic grades. Readers will be delighted with the authors' helpful, clearly written, common-sense approaches to improve understanding, and help to optimize the strategies needed to organize all the necessary components required to improve the educational experience, and to ensure success in school.

A lot of the content should be self-evident. Target audience really seems to be for parents who are challenged with little ability to organize, and want to organize things for their kid(s). If that is you I recommend this book. I was looking more for a book that had insight in teaching children to organize things for themselves.

For starters, the author speaks to the reader straight across, not from a higher vantage point ... he comes across like he understands and is here to help us puzzle this dilemma out. Having established authenticity, the rest of the book just flows out.
He offers clear, realistic approaches to helping our children learn to organize themselves and he ends up teaching parents a thing or two, as well.

Great suggestions that are easy to implement and do make a difference. This book is full of practical advice and does a good job of relating the advice to real life. Definitely worth your time.

This book has been one of my best purchases. The author does a remarkable job of simplifying and categorizing a top that has many parents like me baffled. We have these adorable and quite efficient children, who often seem to do one aspect of their work really well and another aspect not so well. For instance, some children face issues in completing work, some in bringing work home from school and some in simply taking the work back or handing their work in. The author very clearly identifies and sorts these problems and presents solutions (which is what we need!) that are easy to implement and in my case very effective.

A must read ...........

This book has been a blessing. We recently found out that my daughter and I have ADHD. Organizing the Disorganized Child is a brilliant step by step look at how to make the school year run smoothly. The steps on how to take tests are worth the price of the book even if nothing else helps. It would have helped me so much if i would have come across these things when i was in school. I also appreciate that it offers different organization styles based on the different ways that people, learn.

This book was fine. I wasn't blown away by it and a lot of the pages covered supplies you should buy for your child, but it had some interesting information. If I hadn't already purchased, I probably would not purchase again.

Pretty good book if you don't already know anything about how children learn or organizational options for them. Has basic tips based on preferences, but the diagnostic test was too simplistic.
