Planner! Planners! Planners! They are the bane of my existence with many of my clients. For students with extreme executive dysfunction, it can be difficult to find the right planning device for them. Year after year, we experiment with different devices and processes made for students, many of which don’t stick.

This year I have several students who are seniors, and I realized with a shock that many of these students don’t use a CALENDAR. We’ve been so focused on tracking their academic To Do lists that they don’t know how to use a regular old calendar.

I’ve told them all that I will consider my work with them a failure this year if they graduate without being calendar savvy.

Watch the video for a more thorough explanation of what I hope their families will do to help them be calendar savvy.
