"Kaufman demonstrates elegantly how the applications of [executive function] research can improve the educational well-being of children who are having difficulty in educational settingsa Takes the sometimes vague and abstract concept of EF and provides practical strategies and solutions." "

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book provides a plethora of information on what should be the next big push in education-- enhancing the executive skills of our students. Dr. Kaufman gives a variety of suggestions which should assist all classroom teachers in connecting with and helping their students stay connected with the lesson. This is a very readable book with a chapter describing seven general strategies for developing executive functioning in the class. The next three chapters describe specific ways executive functioning interferes with the academic topics of reading, writing and mathematics.

A must read for the 21st century educator!

I have over 20 books about ADHD and executive Dysfunction. None explained how my child could score in the 98% in perceptual reasoning/math abilities on IQ testing and still struggle in a math classroom. This book is an invaluable look at how your very bright but dysexecutive child may srtuggle in school and what you can do to explain or "de-mystify" what is going on for him and for you! A must buy for parents who are struggling to understand what executive dysfunction is and how your child suffers in "Traditional" classrooms and what to do to help her/him.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Neatfreak on November 9, 2012
Format: Paperback
This book is a real gem for parents or teachers of kids have some executive functioning difficulties (including disorganization, forgetfulness etc). It's written for an academic audience, but it's accessible and a fantastic resource for intervention strategies and supportive materials (like pre-writing forms, mind-mapping, book club reports, etc). There are specific strategies for specific issues, and I have successfully tried some of these at home.

Highly recommend!

I have a student this year (as a veteran teacher of 23 years) that really needs me to gain more insight and knowledge into how I can better assist him with his executive function challenges. It is incredible informative and has real concrete suggestions and approaches that I am finding so valuable. "Executive functioning" is one of the latest buzz words in education, and I know what it looks like, but I really needed to know how to better serve this student and offer more helpful suggestions to his parents who are do incredibly supportive. I highly recommend this book to all teachers…so helpful!

I ordered this book and it came when stated in perfectly new condition. This is a great guide for anyone that may have a child struggling with focus issues in school or at home. It is a well written book that I highly recommend for teachers and parents to be able to identify these issues, understand why they occur and learn strategies to mitigate the problems.
