Recommends it for: parents and educators of children with executive function difficulties
This is a heavily sourced and comprehensive book on executive function. I haven't read the whole book, but concentrated on Chapter 7 "Executive Dysfunction in Autism Spectrum Disorders: From Research to Practice" and Chapter 8 "Executive Function in the Classroom: Embedding Strategy Instruction into Daily Teaching Practices.

These chapters greatly improved my understanding of my child's difficulties with executive function. I now have a much better understanding of the EF skills he needs to lear
I want to take this to our sped director and twap him over the head with it -- what a wonderful, understandable explanation of executive functioning and how to bolster it in a struggling student.
Gained a few insights and a lot of reinforcement of what I've been working on for years...
