Contents "If my kid is so smart, why is he so slow?" -- "My child doesn't seem to be able to keep up. Now what do I do?" -- "So what, exactly, is processing speed?" -- Processing speed in the family -- Processing speed at home -- Processing speed in the classroom -- Processing speed and social relationships -- The emotional costs of slow processing speed -- Pulling it all together : formally assessing processing speed.
Summary "Do you find yourself constantly asking your child to "pick up the pace"? Does he or she seem to take longer than others to get stuff done--whether completing homework, responding when spoken to, or getting dressed and ready in the morning? Drs. Ellen Braaten and Brian Willoughby have worked with thousands of kids and teens who struggle with an area of cognitive functioning called "processing speed," and who are often mislabeled as lazy or unmotivated. Filled with vivid stories and examples, this crucial resource demystifies processing speed and shows how to help kids (ages 5 to 18) catch up in this key area of development"-- Provided by publisher.
