Bright Kids Who Can't Keep Up

Help Your Child Overcome Slow Processing Speed and Succeed in a Fast-Paced World

Drs. Ellen Braaten and Brian Willoughby have worked with thousands of kids and teens who struggle with an area of cognitive functioning called "processing speed"--and who are often mislabeled as lazy or unmotivated. Whether it's completing homework, responding when spoken to, or getting dressed and ready for school, these kids simply take longer than others to get stuff done. Now parents have a crucial resource that demystifies processing speed and shows how to help kids catch up in this key area of development. By following the authors' specific pointers--illustrated with vivid stories and examples--parents can make daily routines less frustrating and more efficient, decide when and how to get a professional evaluation, obtain needed support at school, and build their son or daughter's skills for success. Helpful practical tools can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.
