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

Executive Skills in Children and Adolescents : A Practical Guide to Assessment and Intervention (Practical Intervention In The Schools)

by Peg Dawson, Richard Guare
2003

Picked up this book in the UBC Bookstore, and it's great! I want to buyit for reference, but don't have the money at the moment.

Basically, the stuff is done with ADHD kids in mind, using ADHD cases.
The book goes through the various executive functioning skills and presents the basic points, and how to implement such a strategy. Each skill has an accompanying case study to help you out.

It's a neat read, doesn't include all the basic information that some of the more seasoned readers might already know back to front.

It's a very strategy oriented publication.

That sounds very interesting. Did it have anything to say about what one might expect to see from meds? I'll have to hunt this one down.

I've been on Dex for a year and a half but I don't see any increase in executive function. I have been unable to compare testing done on and off meds.
Cheers! Ian.
