“This is a unique and marvelous book that presents a useful coaching model for students with executive skills deficits, including those who have ADHD. It is the most informative, practical guide available on the topic. As with their other books, the authors have again produced a resource that is straightforward, well organized, easy to understand, and filled with strategies that can be readily implemented. The book will prove exceptionally useful not only for teachers, practitioners, and coaches, but also for graduate courses in education and in school, child clinical, and counseling psychology."--Russell A. Barkley, PhD, ABPP, ABCN, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Virginia Treatment Center for Children and Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine
"This book expands on an already-proven model and will be indispensable in my practice of clinical psychotherapy, school-based student support, and educational consultation. Executive skills deficits rarely occur in isolation, and unwinding these ever-building complexities to reengage a frustrated learner is difficult. Now there is a systematic and structured model that will help struggling students benefit from targeted support and develop new pathways for success. This resource represents hope for many children and their parents and teachers."--Benjamin C. Hillyard, MEd, LCMHC, private practice, Exeter, New Hampshire
"This is a substantial resource for my school psychology practice, where I oversee graduate student interns who serve as coaches in our large, complex high school. This book gives the coaching role needed definition and direction, providing a well-thought-through, evidence-based series of sessions for students with skills deficits in time management, planning and prioritizing, and organization. This model has great benefit to the training needs of the intern/coaches as well. Dawson and Guare present a tidy marriage of coaching and executive skills that includes a complete system for implementation and dissemination."--Suzanne Donnellan, PsyD, Psychologist, Brookline High School (Massachusetts); lecturer, Northeastern University
