This book represents a compilation of the most practical tools and strategies available for working with students with Executive Functioning problems. Many of these tools are equally useful with most students in general education classrooms, which ensures the book can be used by a wide cross-section of teachers.  The strategies offered here are rooted in solid research and classroom-tested experience.  Cooper-Kahn and Foster have organized the book in a way that helps real teachers in real classrooms negotiate the very fluid challenges they face every day; educators will find strategies that improve their classroom flow and reduce the stress of struggling to meet the challenges inherent in teaching students with EF weaknesses. Blending the voices of a learning specialist and a child psychologist, the book also offers ways to extend learning and support strategies beyond the classroom.
