About the Author
Lynn Meltzer, PhD, is President and Director of the Institutes for Learning and Development (ResearchILD and ILD) in Lexington, Massachusetts. She is also an Associate in Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a Fellow and past president of the International Academy for Research in Learning Disabilities. For 29 years, she was Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Child Development at Tufts University. Dr. Meltzer is founder and chair of the International Learning Differences Conference, which was established in 1984 and is held at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Her 40 years of neuropsychological evaluations and clinical consultations with children, adolescents, and adults have emphasized the theory-to-practice cycle of knowledge. She has been an invited speaker at numerous national and international conferences, including that of the International Association for Cognitive Education in Southern Africa. She is also the recipient of numerous awards, including the Outstanding Researcher Award from the Council for Learning Disabilities. Among Dr. Meltzer's extensive publications and presentations are the books Promoting Executive Function in the Classroom, The Power of Peers in the Classroom (coedited with Karen R. Harris), and Executive Function in Education, Second Edition. Together with her ResearchILD colleagues, she developed SMARTS Online, an evidence-based executive function and peer mentoring/coaching curriculum for middle and high school students (www.smarts-ef.org).

Besides the excellent overview on understanding, assessing and teaching executive function processes, the constructs of goal setting, planning, prioritizing, organization, remembering, problem-solving and self-monitoring/self-checking form the chapters that comprise this book. There are suggestions on methods to teach EF separately or incorporating it in classes of math, reading, or writing. The reproducibles can be used in the classroom or with individual students. I found it easy to relate to this book because of the large number of references to experimental designs which lend credence to the efficacy of the recommended techniques.
While part of the title includes "What works for special-needs learners", all schools and educators need to become familiar with the concepts discussed on these pages.
Thank you Dr. Meltzer!!
