It is about 8 Executive Control skills including:
Flexibility, Organization, Emo Control, Initiation (!!!!), Flexibility, Planning, Attention. This is not specifically for ADHD but of course it impacts every issue.

I also really like:

http://www.allkindsofminds.org/Images/products/akom.jpgAll Kinds of Minds by Mel Levine (http://allkindsofminds.com) which is also wonderful for school issues.

And if you are also dealing with sensory integration issues I recommend The Out of SYnch Child.

Are you talking about children or adults?

These are for children--isn't it funny how you're motivated to read for your kids first--but very illuminating!
