Study skills and techniques

Some coaching towards a positive philosophy of learning and some explicit techniques about how to study and get organized can go a long way toward success in school. Many learning difficulties stem from differences in executive function (problem solving and planning skills). Youth with or without learning difficulties  don’t necessarily want to take direction from their own parents, but they might listen to Dr. Tim McGee of Worland High School. His DVD course How to Become a SuperStar Student is on sale for about a quarter of the usual price from The Teaching Company this month. Or you might find it at your public library.
