Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“An excellent resource for students, educators and families. As a middle school counselor, I will definitely use this as a tool to help our students succeed in the area of executive functioning!”
Lisa Koenecke, Wisconsin School Counselor Association President

“I think it would be an invaluable resource for executive skills coaches and for teachers developing executive skills seminars for groups of students. The activities and exercises are versatile enough that they could be used with individual students or with groups of students—and coaches and seminar leaders could easily pick and choose which executive skills to emphasize and which exercises to use.”
Peg Dawson, EdD, psychologist and author of several books on executive skills, including Smart but Scattered

“Many teens struggle with executive functioning challenges, especially those with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning disabilities, high functioning autism, or other conditions. This workbook gives these teens (and their parents) strategies to improve their executive functions, which means they can develop skills to improve their lives.”
Dr. Kenny Handelman, author of Attention Difference Disorder
