Book Overview

A wonderful resource for anyone who knows or works with teens who suffer from executive functioning disorder (EFD)--including parents, teachers, counselors, or clinicians. From handling frustration to taking notes in class, this book will help teens hone the skills they need to succeed.

Do you know a teen who is disorganized, chronically late, forgetful, or impulsive? Do they struggle to get homework done, but never manage to turn it in on time? Perhaps it's your son or daughter, a student you work with, or even a client. It's likely that this teen suffers from executive functioning disorder (EFD), an attention disorder marked by an inability to stay on task that is common in people with learning disabilities. If this teen has tried to manage his or her time and meet deadlines with little success, he or she may feel like giving up. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, however. You just need to show them the way.

In The Executive Functioning Workbook for Teens a licensed school counselor provides an evidence-based, easy-to-use, and practical workbook written directly for a teen audience. The book is designed to provide teens with the skills needed to get organized, retain information, communicate effectively, and perform well in school and in everyday life. Based in proven-effective cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), the book Read More chevron_right

   Not For High-School Students
It's just that the book is being labeled for use by teens. It's not appropriate for children that age. Rather than practical interventions, most of the exercises are self-help activities that would only be welcome and useful for younger children and maybe adults, Myers said. Most teens with executive dysfunction or other LDs are already sensitive to being infantilized, and a lot of Hansen's exercises assume a level of self-reflectiveness that most teens with EF issues— including teens with Asperger's syndrome—simply don't yet have. For useful, teen-appropriate exercises, I recommend Peg Dawson's book, Coaching Students with Executive Skills Deficits.

   More appropriate for a younger age group
Some of the information was valuable to my patients and families, however, I did not find many of the activities appropriate for teens. I did not find the activities challenging for teens and decided to utilize the book for younger patients.

   Not really for teenagers
As a school psychologist I was hoping to find something appropriate for teenagers without recreating the wheel, Bruno said. Not what I was expecting from the Red Sox, said Mike Sweeney, a former player.

   Outstanding Resource for Those Who Struggle with Disorganization
This workbook is EXCELLENT in dissecting behaviors, thought patterns, and consequences for those who are slower in executive functioning. My son struggles with organization. Even though he got a little frustrated with the book, he DID identify his weaknesses.
