What other have said of this work:
A unique and marvelous book that presents a coaching model for students with executive skills deficits including those that have ADHD. It is the most informative, practical guide available on the topic – filled with strategies that can be readily implemented. Russell A. Barkley, PhD, ABPP, Dept. of Psychiatry, Medical University of So. Carolina
If coaching kids with executive skills deficits were a football game, this would be the playbook. It provides both theory and the details on how to implement a coaching program… synthesizes cutting-edge research on learning and the brain into an accessible approach. As a student of child development and the brain I strongly recommend it Thomas (Lee) Reynolds MD, psychatrist, North Canton
invaluable to teachers, counselors and school psychologists who work with students with executive skills deficits… provides constructive, step-by-step guidance on what it means to have an executive skills deficit and how to implement an effective coaching program. Peter Farrel, PhD CPsychol, FBPsS, University of Manchester, United Kingdom
