Product Description

Published USA, 2008
Is your child chronically late turning in assignments?
Does she turn up for soccer practice without her sports bag?
Does he say things without thinking?
Does she read something and forget what she has read?

Written by two clinical psychologists, this book is a practical, down-to-earth guide for parents of children and adolescents who have difficulty with planning and organization, self-monitoring, impulse control, working memory, and initiating tasks. The authors help parents understand the developmental foundation of executive functioning, providing a friendly approach to managing disorganized children on a daily basis. The book offers both short-term strategies and ways to build skills needed for long-term, life-long success, whether a child has AD/HD, autism, learning disabilities, or no specific diagnosis.
