Rule number three is keeping it organised: this rule relates particularly to the child's school life. Rule number four is to keep doing rules one to three.

Organize Your ADD/ADHD Child
| by Cheryl R Cater | This book addresses the issues of organisation and time management in relation to ADD/ADHD, suggesting practical ways of organising your child’s day and turning chaos into calm. Accommodating short attention spans and short fuses, Cheryl Carter shows how, by using the F.I.R.S.T method (Fun, Individualism, Rules, Simplicity and Time management), even the most hyperactive and easily distracted of children can be taught to make their bed, pack their school bag, and generally get organised!

Her no-nonsense, step-by-step strategies, in combination with positive affirmations and realistic demands, will get ADD/ADHD children organised, and from A to B without a hitch.
