Executive Skills in Children and Adolescents: A Practical Guide to Assessment and Intervention


Product Description

Published USA, 2018 (3rd edition)
This highly practical manual provides a research-based framework for strengthening executive functioning in children and adolescents. The book explains how executive skills develop in children and are used in everyday life - from the self-regulation required for responsible behaviour to the planning and initiation abilities needed to complete homework on time. Guidelines are presented for conducting multimodal assessments and using the results to plan environmental modifications, individualized instruction, coaching, and whole-class interventions. Attention is also given to working with children with AD/HD and other clinical problems in which executive skills are impaired. Many of the techniques described can be implemented by teachers and parents in collaboration with school-based clinicians. In a large-size format with convenient lay-flat binding, the manual includes reproducible assessment tools, checklists and planning sheets.

Peg Dawson and Richard Guare are psychologists at the Centre for Learning and Attention Disorders in New Hampshire, USA.
