Leslie's Story

Welcome! I am so excited you found our products designed with students in mind!

I’m assuming if you are here then this might be happening?

  • Your child has no time sense – doesn’t realize that what he has due next week or next month might need to be started today.
  • Waits until the last minute and then rushes to complete assignments.
  • Doesn’t know how to study. Take notes. Or even tests.
  • You’ve been searching for tips and tools to help your child and yourself to no avail.

And you are frustrated and overwhelmed by it all.


How Did I Do? (Yeah, I Thought So!)

Leslie JoselI know you’ve scoured the market trying to find the right tools that would help your child develop organizing and time management skills. Maybe the planner your student was given in school didn’t work. Or you realized that most of the planners you found were “to-do” style planners-used JUST to record homework assignments and test dates. Or worse, your child is lacking the necessary study and test taking skills to succeed in school. And most importantly, you’ve been looking for tools to help you help your child. I know! That is exactly what I went through!


Well, You Are In The Right Place!

As the Founder of Order Out of Chaos (an organizing consulting firm specializing in student organizing and coaching), I work with students every day to help them develop organizing and time management strategies. I went searching for tools that would help my students (and my own children!) learn the necessary skills they needed to succeed in school and in life! Unable to find any, I designed my own! Products Designed with Students in Mind™! And I’m so excited that our Academic Planners received a 2016 Family Choice Award recognizing the best products for children and their families.

It All Started With My Son

When my son, Eli was 5 years old he was diagnosed with ADHD, Executive Function deficiencies and some learning issues. Uncovering ways to get and keep my son organized and teach him time management skills became my passion…and my business. I learned systems and strategies that could be used to bring some order to the chaos at home and at school. But the most effective “research” I did was to talk to parents like me to learn from their experiences, share information and provide support.

I soon realized that I could use my newfound expertise as the basis to launch the next chapter in my professional life.  Parents were coming to me in droves for education, systems and strategies to help themselves and their children with organizing and time management skills. Out of that realization, I launched Order Out of Chaos® with a mission to bring peace, sanity and hope, as well as personalized organizing and time management systems and structure, to families. Order Out of Chaos® offers organizing, time management and coaching services; family education, and ADHD resources as well as classes, educational videos and products to families and their students— both mainstream and those with learning differences.

Time Management is a Life Skill that Doesn’t Come Naturally. It Can be Learned.

So, here’s what I learned after 12 years. Time management and organizational issues effect most children-those with learning differences and even the most able learners. I can’t recall how many stories I’ve heard from my friends and clients about their children that – at their heart – were about time management or organization. Tales of research papers being written the night before they were due, struggles getting out the door in the morning or endless hours spent on electronic devices…and the stories go on and on. But with the proper tools and resources for students and parents, these essential skills can be learned.

So thank you for joining our Community. We are here to support you… and your student.


Warmly, Leslie
