Smart but Scattered the Revolutionary "Executive Skills" Approach to Helping Kids Reach Their Potential

Scientists who study child development have recently found that kids who are "smart but scattered" lack or lag behind in crucial executive skills--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 kids' abilities to plan ahead, be efficient, follow through, and get things done.
