Editorial Reviews

Review

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

More About the Author

Christopher Kaufman, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist (Maine) and certified School Psychologist (Doctoral). He has practiced for 27 years as both a school and clinical child psychologist across a range of educational and clinical settings (serving from September, 1999 through February, 2011 as Lead Psychologist for the Portland School Department). An entertaining and engaging speaker, Dr. Kaufman provides brain-based learning workshops/trainings for teachers, clinicians, and administrators throughout New England and, increasingly, around the country and around the world. Among his more notable recent engagements have included featured speaker roles at the Fall, 2012 National Dyslexia Foundation Conference at Harvard Medical School, the February, 2013 European Brain-Based Learning Conference in Madrid, Spain, and the Spring, 2013 Learning and the Brain conference in Washington, DC. Dr. Kaufman strives to make all his trainings and workshops enjoyable, informative, and (above all) of practical value to attendees. His clinical specialties include the evaluation and treatment of learning disabilities (reading, math, and written language disorders), ADHD and related executive functioning struggles, pediatric anxiety disorders (particularly Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder), and pervasive developmental disorders. His first book, Executive Function in the Classroom: Practical Strategies for Improving Performance and Enhancing Skills for All Students, was issued by Brookes Publishing Company in May, 2010 and is readily available through brookespublishing.com, amazon.com, and most major booksellers.

Very readable book.

The next three chapters describe specific ways executive functioning interferes with the academic topics of reading, writing and mathematics.

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.

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!
