"The book represents a welcome step forward in designing and implementing interventions and supports to promote executive function at home and in the classroom. Dawson and Guare integrate up-to-date theory with interventions that take a real-world, problem-solving approach to the full spectrum of executive difficulties, from inhibitory control and emotional regulation to initiation, working memory, planning, and organization. An essential 'how-to' manual."--Peter K. Isquith, PhD, Departments of Psychiatry and Pediatrics, Dartmouth Medical School
"As a school psychologist, I am always looking for resources that take the latest research and translate it into everyday practice. Dawson and Guare provide practical, specific, and easy-to-use guidelines for intervening with students at every tier of the RTI process. From assessment to intervention to progress monitoring, the book is packed with clear routines and tools to use in consulting with teachers, parents, and administrators. It also has a wealth of information about how to intervene with whole classes, small groups, and individual students. My copy of the first edition is well worn, and I can already tell the second edition will be as well, because of its practical and easily reproducible materials."--Rebecca Branstetter, PhD, school psychologist, Oakland Unified School District, California

Dawson and Guare include chapters on the neurological working of the brain, methods of assessing executive functioning, linking assessment to intervention (both with individual students and with a class), coaching, implementing strategies within an RTI framework, and diagnosed populations. The chapter on transitions, either between classes or schools, is also very useful.
The concern in this book is on addressing symptoms/behaviors which may be interfering with a student's success. While useful to a wide population of adults wishing to implement a positive change in a student, it must be remembered that behavioral checklists provide only one source of information for a very complex set of skills. The use of published, standardized behavior checklists are discussed as an adjunct to the material covered in this book.
This revised book will prove to be a very useful reference for those responsible for recommending and/or implementing strategies for struggling students.
Without reading the whole book - I was using some of the materials within 10 minutes of opening the box. If you are teacher or parent of the disorganized you will find ways to help support your student in their education.
