Organization skills help children
learn how to collect and order all the information needed to systematically complete a task. Organization skills help children learn how to collect and order all the information needed to systematically complete a task. They are strategies to structure time, organize materials and work efficiently independently or with others. These skills help develop self-esteem, problem solving and decision making which are essential life skills. Charts, games, sorting activities and pretend play items assist with the exploration and introduction of organization.
Organization and planning are learned skills that can affect a child's performance at school. Children with attention deficit disorder (ADHD) may be especially challenged when it comes to organizing, prioritizing, and managing their time effectively (also see time management). Failure to bring homework assignments home may be a sign that a child's organizational skills may need strengthening.
