Look no further/m-/this fascinating and readable book is packed full of useful ideas that will help you understand what the problem is and how you can help. It presents practical and proven techniques based on rigorous scientific research." - Peter Farrell, University of Manchester, United Kingdom; past president, International School Psychology Association
"The best parent resource on executive skills that I have seen. As a parent of three children, one of whom has learning disabilities, and as a special education associate who works in the classroom, I highly recommend this book. It shows there is hope for children who are struggling, and offers practical, detailed advice." - L. Libbey, parent, Hampton, New Hampshire, USA
"Filled with real-world examples and real-world solutions, this easy-to-read book is the first comprehensive guide to the management of children's executive skills. It gets to the heart of the matter, offering both parents and teachers accessible and highly efficient means to cope with a gamut of obstacles faced by children of all ages and abilities." - Kristina Mecelicaite, special education coordinator, North Central Charter Essential School, Fitchburg, Massachusetts, USA
"Drs. Dawson and Guare translate cutting-edge research into meaningful, practical, well-organized, and easy-to-implement strategies that parents can use to enhance a child's natural executive abilities. This brilliant book is by far the best on the topic that I have read to date." - Russell A. Barkley, author of Taking Charge of ADHD
"If you've ever wondered why your child struggles academically or behaviorally - despite having 'the right stuff' to succeed - this book is essential reading. Drs. Dawson and Guare explain the importance of executive skills and provide science-based strategies that empower you to start helping your child today." - Sam Goldstein, coauthor of Raising Resilient Children

"For all parents who wonder why their children struggle academically or behaviorally - despite having 'the right stuff' to succeed - this book is essential reading. Executive skills are widely recognized as critical to children's academic, social, and interpersonal functioning. Dawson and Guare clearly explain the importance of executive skills and provide a reasoned set of strategies that empower parents to foster these key capabilities in their children. Educators, too, will find this book a welcome contribution." - Sam Goldstein, Research Professor of Psychology, George Mason University, USA
"The authors provide a satisfying framework for creating environmental supports in areas needed and supplying the hands-on direction necessary for children to function well and build confidence. While Susan Ericksen's distinct and assertive enunciation promotes respect for these ideas, her warmth also makes them sound inviting." - AudioFile (December 2012)
