    From two leading experts in the field of child development, Dr. Ellen Braaten and Dr. Brian Willoughby, comes a difinitive guide to understanding how children process information and respond to the world around them. 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 from ages five to eighteen catch up in this key area of development. Learn how to obtain needed support at school, what to expect from a professional evaluation, and how you can make daily routines more efficient—while promoting your child’s social and emotional well-being.
