I recommend this book to anyone who has a child in need of being more flexible and goal directed!!
This practical book contains a state-of-the-art curriculum developed by experts in the field, including special ed teachers, psychologists, neuropsychologists, therapists and parents of children with high-functioning ASDs. It integrates the scientific knowledge of how executive dysfunction and social learning disorders overlaps to cause behavioral and learning challenges. A nice aspect is that they promote the inclusion of the parents participation to truly help children succeed with their executive skills.
I am a neuropsychologist, and I work primarily as a clinician and a professor. I have seen the implementation of this curriculum in children with High Functioning ASDs with amazing success. In addition, my OT and SLP colleagues have also used chapters of this book with great results with out children.
Overall, I congratulate the authors at both Ivymount School and the Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders at Children's National Medical Center for such a great contribution to the academic and clinical field.
