Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Dawson and Guare are to be congratulated for writing such a readable yet scientifically rigorous manual that will be invaluable to teachers, counselors, and school psychologists who work with students with executive skills deficits. The book is illustrated with fascinating case examples that will be all too familiar to teachers who have struggled to find ways of helping students to reach their potential. It provides constructive, step-by-step guidance on what it means to have an executive skills deficit and how to implement an effective coaching program. Practitioners and graduate students will find this book an excellent resource for planning intervention programs for students with executive skills deficits."--Peter Farrell, PhD, CPsychol, FBPsS, Professor of Special Needs and Educational Psychology, University of Manchester, United Kingdom

“This is a unique and marvelous book that presents a useful coaching model for students with executive skills deficits, including those who have ADHD. It is the most informative, practical guide available on the topic. As with their other books, the authors have again produced a resource that is straightforward, well organized, easy to understand, and filled with strategies that can be readily implemented. The book will prove exceptionally useful not only for teachers, practitioners, and coaches, but also for graduate courses in education and in school, child clinical, and counseling psychology."--Russell A. Barkley, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry, Medical University of South Carolina

"If coaching kids with executive skills deficits were a game of football, this book would be the playbook. Dawson and Guare provide both theory and the minute details of how to implement a coaching program. They synthesize cutting-edge research on learning and the brain into an accessible approach. The numerous handouts and clear instructions make the model very easy to start using immediately. As a student of child development and the brain, I strongly recommend this book."--Thomas (Lee) Reynolds, MD, child and adolescent psychiatrist, North Canton, Ohio

"This book expands on an already-proven model and will be indispensable in my practice of clinical psychotherapy, school-based student support, and educational consultation. Executive skills deficits rarely occur in isolation, and unwinding these ever-building complexities to reengage a frustrated learner is difficult. Now there is a systematic and structured model that will help struggling students benefit from targeted support and develop new pathways for success. This resource represents hope for many children and their parents and teachers."--Benjamin C. Hillyard, MEd, LCMHC, private practice, Exeter, New Hampshire

"This is a substantial resource for my school psychology practice, where I oversee graduate student interns who serve as coaches in our large, complex high school. This book gives the coaching role needed definition and direction, providing a well-thought-through, evidence-based series of sessions for students with skills deficits in time management, planning and prioritizing, and organization. This model has great benefit to the training needs of the intern/coaches as well. Dawson and Guare present a tidy marriage of coaching and executive skills that includes a complete system for implementation and dissemination."--Suzanne Donnellan, PsyD, Psychologist, Brookline High School (Massachusetts); lecturer, Northeastern University
