Executive Function in Education: From Theory to Practice


Product Description

Published USA, 2018 (2nd edition)
This volume brings together leading scientists and practitioners from education, neuroscience and psychology to review the growing body of ideas and findings in the area of executive functioning. The book translates current knowledge into guidelines for intervention and instruction at the level of the individual, the classroom and the school. Divided into three parts, the text first presents a theoretical framework for understanding executive function processes and their role in cognition, learning and development. Part II focuses on how attention to these processes can enhance assessment and treatment of children with specific disorders, including learning disabilities, nonverbal learning disabilities, and autism spectrum disorders. In the final part of the book, contributors describe ways to support all students in building vital skills for self-directed learning.

Lynn Meltzer is cofounder and codirector of the Institutes for Learning and Development in Massachusetts, USA.
