Written especially for parents, this accessible, state-of-the-science guide provides crucial knowledge and tools for supporting school-age kids who lack or lag behind in executive skills–the core, brain-based habits of mind required to “execute” tasks like getting organized, staying focused, completing assignments, and controlling emotions.
More than 40 reproducible questionnaires, worksheets, and planning tools help parents assess their child’s strengths and weaknesses and implement step-by-step strategies to solve problems at home and in school. School-based practitioners will find this book useful for their work and will want to recommend it to parents. The approach is suitable for children with ADHD or learning disabilities as well as those without a clinical diagnosis.
