Does your child fidget, seem to be in constant motion, or frequently go off on
tangents? Maybe your child can sit still just fine but seems to be in his own little world rather than attending to the task at hand. Does a twenty-minute assignment take two hours at your house? Come and learn the best teaching tips for working with distractible children as well as ways to tweak the learning environment and develop your child’s awareness of time passing.
Have you ever considered recording your voice so you wouldn’t have to keep saying the same things over and over? If you feel as though you are constantly redirecting your distractible child, it may be time to teach some strategies to promote selfmonitoring and greater independence. Find out how using a menu can help identify areas of distractibility, encourage your child to take responsibility for using strategies, and learn ways to tackle projects and get them done on time.
Melinda and Scott Boring, married for 25+ years, team up for this lively presentation about distractibility issues for adults. Melinda loves organizational aids, structure, and planning in advance. Scott loves spontaneity, creativity, and procrastinating. How did these two ever get together!? Find out how this couple found strategies that work. Includes question and answer time with attendees
