I just found a great tool that helps me take notes. I am dyslexic on top of being ADD, so my attention wanders and even when I am paying attention, it’s anybodies guess as to what I am writing. I use a Livescribe pen to do that for me. It doesn’t care about how my hieroglyphs are written nor does it care what order they are in. The price is a little steep, and the pen might be large for small hands, but it is a lifesaver! … LOL is this pushing an agenda?… just kidding!!!

Laddybug as usual has great ideas. What ever system you use, stick with it. Eventually, it all becomes habit. Even when you are distracted, things will find their way to their place. So, have a place for everything, and put everything in its place. I am sure your parents tell you that all the time, but it really works. I have found that by starting off small, finding a place for one or two things is not so overwhelming. Then adding one or two things as i get used to it. Then it becomes YOUR system and makes sense to you.

Talk to your parents and tell them what you want to do and ask them for their help. If you talk to them in your “grown up” voice, they will listen. After they get over their shock, you will be surprised what they will do for you.
