About this item

Dawson and Guare (psychology, Center for Learning and Attention Disorders) have written this guide for parents who need their children to develop "executive skills," or the ability to complete tasks and solve problems in a timely and organized manner. The authors provide step-by-step instructions on how to identify the strengths and weaknesses of these children, and how to prepare a customized set of behavioral exercises that will motivate them toward improved work and study habits while controlling impulsive or emotional behaviors. A chapter is also included to help parents identify behavioral issues, such as attention-deficit disorders, that may require professional intervention.
