The Shelton System for Organizational and Study Skills: A How-To Workshop
Organizational skills are automatic and easy for some people; however, this is usually not the case with those who have learning differences or those with ADHD. Students are often overwhelmed, needing guidance in facing assignments with confidence. This presentation, based on the Shelton System for Organization for Study Skills, is designed to guide parents in supporting organizational systems and strong strategies at home. It also addresses developing strategies to analyze assignments, to form effective strategies, and to effectively complete these assignments in a variety of subject matter classes. The Shelton System for Organization and Study Skills has been developed over the 40 years that the June Shelton School has been in existence. Located in Dallas, TX, Shelton is the largest independent school for learning different students, preschool through high school.
