Executive functions are the cognitive skills that help us manage our lives and be successful. Children with weak executive skills, despite their best intentions, often do their homework but forget to turn it in, wait until the last minute to start a project, lose things, or have a room that looks like a dump! The good news is that parents can do a lot to support and train their children to manage these frustrating and stressful weaknesses. Late, Lost, and Unprepared is a must-have book for parents of children from primary school through high school who struggle with: - Impulse Control (taking turns, interrupting others, running off) - Cognitive Flexibility (adapting to new situations, transitions, handling frustrations) - Initiation (starting homework, chores, and major projects) - Working Memory (following directions, note-taking, reading and retaining info) - Planning & Organizing (completing and turning in homework, juggling schedules) - Self-monitoring (making careless errors, staying on topic, getting into trouble but not understanding why) Written by clinical psychologists, Late, Lost, and Unprepared emphasizes the need for a two-pronged approach to intervention: 1) helping the child to manage demands in the short run, and 2) building independent skills for long-term self-management.

Part II discusses What You Can Do About It including how to change behavior and set reasonable expectations, and offers specific intervention strategies for children of different ages, varying needs, and profiles. Late, Lost, and Unprepared is chockful of ideas for helping your child or student be productive and independent--today and in the future.
Education is a (neuro)biological process. Not paying attention to this fact can provoke challenging behavior. The key to success in school thus lies in internalizing the vantage point of the ´´malfunctioning´´ child.The author´s case histories begin from extreme preconditions: autism, trisomy 21, epilepsy, Tourette´s syndrome, etc. They intend to enable the reader to see presumed unalterable limitations as challenges and not to view neurobiological perceptions as boundaries. Educational optimism should always be possible with less momentous symptoms. (Neuro)biological boundaries serve not as insuperable obstacles, but as welcome challenges. This is a book for everyone wanting to avoid learning difficulties in children or to better understand their own role in education.
