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.

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!

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!

This is a wonderful book for a teacher, parent, or therapist who is serious about learning and implementing strategies to help a child (or adult) with executive dysfunctions. It begins with a brief neuropsychological overview of executive functions, followed by salient issues in the assessment of them. Four important chapters describe how any one, or a combination of weaknesses, could influence academic performance in math, reading, writing, and study skills. Specific strategies, many with charts or templates which would be copied or individualized, are given. This book would be great to use in a professional or collage study group. School psychologists and therapists will also find it helpful when looking for specific strategies to recommend or use directly with clients.
