If you have a child or student who seems academically unmotivated, disinterested, and who has a tendency to give up . . .
Don’t allow it!
The problem may be that they have focus disabilities that can be remedied at home and at school. In this guide to helping students, a retired teacher and counselor with forty-two years of experience shares practical strategies to:
• revise your approach based on a child’s learning style;
• help children focus on the task at hand;
• find the best place for a child to study; and
• establish routines that promote success.
Before you start testing a child for Attention Deficit Disorder or other serious problems, you must give them a chance to focus—and this means showing them how to do it.
Whether you’re a parent or a teacher, you’ll find straightforward guidance that can change an underperforming child into a bright student poised for success with the lessons in this book.
