The advice presented has practical context and gives specifics for action. Using the "SMART" model (goals should be: specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely), kids can join their parents in improving impulse control and organization. --Library Journal, Starred Review
If you have a student, or know a parent who has a child with Executive Function Difficulties, I would highly suggest this book. The authors James Forgan, Ph.D., and Mary Anne Richey have organized this book perfectly. Each chapter is broken down into a short self-reflection survey, details and research about the aspect they are explaining, how to help your child at home, school, in the community, and how to use their strengths and technology. They also have a short list of books that would be good to read with your child that they can relate to, along with suggestions for the classroom teacher. They also include some ideas of apps, and websites that will help your child in various ways. --Jeffrey Shoemaker, Gifted Intervention Specialist
If you are a parent looking for straight-forward solutions to help your disorganized child, this incredibly user-friendly resource is the guidebook you've been seeking. Whether you're tackling issues at home, at school or in the community, Forgan and Richey organize Executive Function challenges so clearly that you can easily target one problem at a time for kids age 4-12--and take immediate action. The "Suggestions for the Teacher" in each chapter are a terrific bonus to copy and share with each year's new school team. --Elaine Taylor-Klaus, ImpactADHD

Smead Cascading Wall Organizer, 6 Pockets, Letter Size, Gray/Bright (92060) sold here on amazon.com. It hangs from the wall and has a different colored folder for each subject and comes with individual labels. At the end of each month, we clean it our and pick the best work from each subject to turn into his online school. Without reading this book, I may never have found such a useful item. I do recommend this book for not only kids with ADHD or other Executive Functioning Disorders, but to any kid who has a difficult time organizing his room, his school papers, his toys, or his books. It's been a lifesaver for me.
The “Is this a problem?” section helps parents move from a generalized sense of something wrong to pinpointing more specific behaviors, and the literature links offer a wonderful way for parents and children to communicate and empathize about their feelings related to EF difficulties.
Kudos to the authors for spelling out the extra care and attention which are critical for children with two homes. More and more and more kudos to the authors for blame-free and do-able ways to help caring adults help kids.
For me as an ADHD Coach, and as the Coordinator of an Educational Support Group for Parents & Educators of Children with ADHD, this book reflects the issues that every single parent and teacher that I encounter face daily at home and at school. I personally will use it as source for guiding me as I coach my own students. And, will suggest it to parents in my group who are constantly searching for understanding, solutions and support.
This new book is essentially and ‘in print’ course on parenting or teaching children with Executive Function Difficulties. I happily endorse it!
