Natural Moms Podcast #135

My guest this week is Joyce Cooper-Kahn PhD, coauthor of “Late, Lost, and Unprepared: A Parents’ Guide to Helping Children with Executive Functioning

late lost unpreparedWhile it sounds complicated, “executive functioning” basically refers to kids with weaknesses in planning and organization. These kids face all kinds of challenges–at school, in sports, in the family, and among their peers.

Do these traits sound familiar?

:  Your child often forgets to turn in assignments at school.

:  S/he arrives at important places unprepared.

: Underestimates the effort involved in projects, has trouble getting started.

: Has trouble organizing space.

Dr. Cooper-Kahn is a clinical psychologist and learning specialist and offers tips for gently parenting a disorganized child.

    Just placed an order for the book. You have no idea how timely this is and how this issue has been bringing me to tears! We are currently working on a diagnosis for our son.

    I also wanted to say that although dealing with the externals are good, they are more times then not symptoms of something else like allergies or chronically poor sleep patterns, etc.

    Thank you for this. I look forward to receiving and reading through this book!
