Praise For…


"Professionals will find a diverse toolbox of strategies designed to promote self-regulated learning. As readers try out these strategies, Dawson and Guare also provide tools to measure progress and tailor approaches to the unique needs and contexts of younger and older students. Critical updates in the second edition include an increased emphasis on collaboration and shared decision making, as well as current information on applications of digital technology."--Margaret H. Sibley, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington School of Medicine

"The second edition is comprehensive and pragmatic. It provides detailed insights on everything from identifying good candidates for coaching to conducting sessions and monitoring progress. The discussions of school-based and peer coaching programs are instrumental, as they broaden the scope of intervention to the institutional level. As a clinical psychologist working in a school setting for over 20 years, I can attest that executive skills coaching can be life changing for many students."--Isabel de Puigdorfila, PsyD, school psychologist, Baldwin School of Puerto Rico

“Dawson and Guare have done it again with the second edition of this masterpiece, providing an excellent framework for coaching students of all ages to manage their executive skills challenges. It’s not hyperbole to say that the appendices alone provide more pragmatic support than most books on the topic do in their entirety. Whether discussing the language that builds agency in clients or the use of specific tools, the book is both comprehensive and clear. I highly recommend this guide for anyone who wishes to make a difference with K–12 students.”--Michael Delman, MEd, Founder and CEO, Beyond BookSmart

"This book should be on the shelf of every professional working with neurodivergent young people. It is a practical, easy-to-follow guide that equips professionals with all the tools they need to get started doing executive skills coaching with children and teens. The new chapter on foundational strategies, as well as other updates in the second edition, are very welcome."--Victoria A. Bagnall, MA, Co-Founder and Managing Director, Connections in Mind

"As director of a company that assists many individuals with learning difficulties and disabilities, I have found this book a 'must have.' It guides educators in a step-by-step coaching process using evidence-based strategies. This a very practical, informative resource for anyone who works with students with executive skills challenges."--Natalie Williamson, Director, LAB Learning Clinic, Australia

“This manual is a current, valuable guide to skill development in executive thinking….This manual stands out, as it stresses voluntary participation and provides best practices with evidence-based tools and progress monitoring that enable paraprofessionals, peers, or laypeople to be coaches.”
