Moreover, its generous menu of solutions and interventions for remedying weaknesses in executive skills are indispensable and therefore well worth trying out with your students or children.

    I read this years ago, and now treat this book more as a reference book. This goes over what the term "executive skills" means (no, it's not to be a company executive), and the ways that challenges with any of those areas affect children at home and school, and various accommodations and interventions to help.

    I can absolutely see myself using many of these strategies and assessments in my work. I thought the vignettes and reproducible assessments were great tools for understanding how executive functioning deficits impact students of all ages. Unlike many other professional books on the subject, this book did not ignore that strategies can be very different for middle/high school students. Often, I read executive functioning books and find them geared toward elementary students only. The strategies s I can absolutely see myself using many of these strategies and assessments in my work.

    I homeschool a daughter who is dyslexic and has some major deficiencies in these areas. I loved this book! It gave me concrete ways to help her grow that organizational muscle memory in appropriate ways! It isn't written for someone who just wants skim. It's written for those who need specific ideas on how to help those children with these problems. I highly recommend.

    For educators not for parents. Excellent book. If you want to read the parent version, check out "Smart but Scattered" by the same authors. Will be using this a lot in my classes this year (and in my family!)

    I read this to screen it for possible use as a reference for my grad students. It's pretty good as far as that goes. Although I was also hoping for some new insight into teaching my middle schoolers. It's only okay on that front. Ah well.

    Explanation of executive skills and interventions. Very dry.

    If you are trying to understand why your child, or your student, or your client are struggling, this could be a good read for you. I've used it primarily for work related purposes.

    Very clinical, but full of good applicable advise.

    Not as useful as I expected but added a few strategies to the repertoire. Interesting to read in light of Russell Barkley's revisionist thinking.

    Easy to follow explanation of executive function and how it develops over time. If your students are scattered and ADHD-like, this book may prove insightful.

    Too scientific, hard to read and get into. I only skimmed it.
