As parents, we have a huge responsibility to raise not only a decent human being but one that can fend for themselves once they are out on their own and in the real world. I always say that life is about problem solving. Children today need to be able to grasp the tools to solve life’s problems as they come. While you may think student organization is just about organizing one’s space, it is that and so much more. Children today have so many challenges. Not only do they have school, sometimes sports, friends, possibly a job but when you had in the component of technology it elevates things to a whole other level. They are torn in so many directions if is oftentimes hard for them to focus and prioritize. Add into that the fact that more and more children are diagnosed with ADHD and executive function disorder and that complicates matters all the more.
What we do with student organizing is not only prepare your child with tools and strategies for a successful school year but we prepare them for life. The skills taught are sometimes the same as for those handling homework and school projects.
With student organizing the core skills a student will develop is:
- Information management
- Time management
- Project management
- Managing multiple priorities
- Study skills
- Space management
Our goal is to give students the ability to excel while they are in school and to continue throughout life. The reality is that life happens and we all need to be able to handle the curveballs thrown at us.
