Always late

Behaviour 

Your client is always late for meetings no matter how important.

Sometimes you feel like the client does not respect your time or does not care. You have told them not to be late, but they always are.

Difficulty 

Your client may have problems with reading notes, sequencing, understanding time or following instructions.

Chronic lateness could be a sign of dyslexia, dyspraxia or ADHD. Many people with these difficulties find organisation a real challenge. They may even have problems with telling time. Written instructions may not be helpful because they may get lost. Or the person may just find them hard to read. 

Strategy 

There are many strategies you can use. Not all of them will work with all people. 

You should focus on helping your client identify the right strategies that will help them compensate for their learning difficulty.
