How to Help Kids Get Organized

A weekly update of content from childmind.org featuring parenting advice, in-depth articles, and the latest thinking on children’s mental health and learning disorders.

October 25, 2022

Being disorganized can cause a great deal of grief for kids with executive functioning issues and ADHD. But with the right tools — and the right support — they can build the skills they need to overcome organizational challenges, get better at managing their time, stop losing things, and start feeling more in control.

This week on childmind.org, we’re rounding up expert advice to help kids get (and stay) organized. We’ve got tips for taming messy rooms and handling homework stresses. Plus we take a closer look at working memory — the executive function that helps us remember what we need to get things done — and how we can help kids who have trouble with it.
