Both practical and sophisticated: A great resource

I am a child/adolescent psychologist. This book is excellent in terms of helping you identify areas in need of support and providing practical ways to help support kids to be more successful at home and at school. I highly recommend it to parents, teachers, and psychologists. The content is particularly relevant for intermediate elementary grades, middle school, and high school students.

Smart but Scattered

As a Special Ed. teacher, I found this book to be very helpful. It is user friendly and has easy to use forms. I was originally looking for information as to how to get my students organized with homework and day to day tasks. This book had what I was looking for and some. I recommend it for teachers and parents as well.

Great reference for parents and educators.

Dawson and Guare have delievered a great book at a more than reasonable price. This book is recommedned to parents, by our school team, when they have a have a child with executive function difficulties. It gives them real tools to work with their child and reduce frustrations at home. I gave it to all of my educator/psychologist friends becasue it is a great reference to help parents help their kids. You can even apply some of the tools listed to yourself if you are a "scattered" adult!

Great Resource

I got this for a friend as I picked her for Kris Kringle this past Christmas at the office. She was also leaving to start a new job and I thought this would be a great resource in her new job along with some other things. She told me it has turned out to be really good and she uses it all the time, she is a home-school liaison and counselor. I am a school psychologist and I have been planning to get this book for some time now. Her revelation of just how useful it is proves I'll be getting it. It is also good for parents with children that have ADHD or lack the skills to be more organized.
