Students with good organization skills have the ability to create and maintain systems to keep track of information or materials. A young child can, with a reminder, put school materials in a designated place. An adolescent can organize and locate sports equipment. Kids with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD) have problems with these tasks. To be organized requires time, effort, and sustained attention. Of these, your children may have only time -- and they’d prefer to be doing something else with it.
