Abstract
In this text, the authors create an innovative blend of theory, research, and practice to offer clinicians a framework of the role of executive functions (EFs) in behavior and learning in educational settings, focusing on the practical issues involved in the use of assessment tools, tests, report writing, and the implementation and follow-up of targeted interventions. Six case studies are followed throughout the book to build an understanding of the executive difficulties of each child and provide assessments for identifying the difficulties and interventions for dealing with them. A companion CD provides the practitioner with a wealth of resources such as assessment forms, parent and teacher handouts, and behavior tracking charts. This book will offer a new understanding of executive functions to readers, and it will enhance their current practices in the assessment and intervention of executive functions.
