Smart but Scattered

Smart but Scattered

Peg Dawson

Overview

It is frustrating to watch your kid struggling to concentrate on simple tasks that other kids seem to perform effortlessly.

According to psychologists Dr. Peg Dawson and Dr. Richard Guare, if your child is easily distracted by their surroundings or thoughts, you need to work with them on their executive skills. Dr. Dawson currently works as a staff psychologist, and Dr. Guare is a neuropsychologist at the Center for Learning and Attention Disorders in Portsmouth, NH. Drs. Dawson and Guare have over 30 years of experience working with children with learning, attention, and behavior difficulties and have co-authored Executive Skills in Children and Adolescents.

In Smart but Scattered, Drs. Dawson and Guare discuss strategies that can help you identify areas of weakness in your child, work with them to maximize their output, and help them become more independent.

"If you have a teen with executive skills weaknesses, it's like taking the typical teen and cranking up the volume—everything is louder, more intense, more scattered."

Drs. Peg Dawson and Richard Guare
