Hello Andy,

There are a few sections on organisation. Try the following:

The whole of the chapter called Making the Grade
The subject-specific help in A Survival Guide to School
The section on organising your personal space in The Hidden People at Home. It is much easier to study in a clear environment.
The section on time management in Parked Diagonally in a Parallel Universe. That chapter is really for dyspraxic people in their early twenties or very late teens, but I put a tip in there about creating a cardboard 'clock' that you might find useful.

You do need someone to sit with you and take you through these ideas. I never try and tidy up or organise my week alone - it just doesn't work. I always end up double-booking myself for something or getting frustrated about the mess with no result. Could your mum help?
