She holds appointments as an Associate in Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and as an Adjunct Associate Professor at the Tufts University Department of Child Development.

The study of executive functioning traces its history back to the field of head trauma.

Executive Function in Education book. There remains two good chapters in this collection: Executive function in the classroom by Lynn Meltzer, Laura Sales Pollica and Mirit Barzillai and Deficits in executive function processes by David Rose and Katherine Rose. The rest were baggy and - to be frank - a bit odd. A book that could have been remarkable fell short through a lack of definitions and clear theorization.

It focuses on how to apply current knowledge to assessment and instruction with diverse learners, including typically developing children and those with learning difficulties and developmental disabilities. Guilford Press, 17 Mar 2011 - 320 sayfa.

For 29 years, she was Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Child Development at Tufts University.

This is the first book on the topic to combine knowledge from education, neuroscience, and psychology, and the contributors are leaders in their fields. It focuses on how to apply current knowledge to assessment and instruction with diverse learners, including typically developing children and those with learning difficulties and developmental disabilities.

This uniquely integrative book brings together research on executive function processes from leaders in education, neuroscience, and psychology. It focuses on how to apply current knowledge to assessment and instruction with diverse learners, including typically developing children and those with learning difficulties and developmental disabilities. The role of executive function processes in learning is examined and methods for identifying executive function difficulties are reviewed. Chapters describe scientifically grounded models for promoting these key cognitive capacities at the level of the individual child, the classroom, and the entire school. Implications for teaching particular content areas—reading, writing, and math—are also discussed.

As a child psychologist who works primarily with foster and adopted children, I use this book quite frequently as a resource. I also recommend it to parents who have children with learning disorders, cognitive problems, or just a tough time being in school.

It's an edited book, so one advantage is that the reader gets various perspectives on helping children with executive delays and challenges. The first part of the book is more clinical, however, which means most parents will derive the greatest benefit from the last 6 chapters.

Collectively, the authors do a nice job of helping the reader to understand what the child's experience is like. This helps broaden empathy on the part of teachers and parents alike, as too often, everyone spends too much time being mad at or frustrated with the child.

I hope the book is selling well, as it is a good resource; in fact, it is one of the better books I've come across in this classification. I'd like to see it as required reading for special education teachers and in classes for parents of special needs kids.

This in-depth book gives you real insights into the nature of executive functioning. The author's writing style is clear and inviting, and she explains somewhat complex relationships very well. First of all, how are ADHD and Executive Functioning (EF) deficits related? Is it possible to have EF deficits and NOT have ADHD? (yes.)
Overall, though, you learn about how devastating the lack or underdevelopment of particular skills are on achievement, and with that understanding, you can guide students through a difficult transition (usually middle school and high school) and give them hope that they will be able to pursue their dreams.

The list of contributors for this book, edited by Lynn Meltzer, reads like a "Who's Who" in the field of executive function research. The study of executive functioning traces its history back to the field of head trauma. With the progress in neuro-imaging, more current research has been directed toward students who experience academic/behavioral difficulty. The authors in this book describe the advances as well as possible pitfalls (Chapter 4 by Kurt Fischer and Samantha Daley)in applying this area of research to education.

The sections of the book cover the theoretical and conceptual frameworks, the challenges and difficulties found in the identification and treatment of executive functioning, and finally, a section of recommended interventions The intervention section considers a schoolwide curriculum and a classroom strategy. Also, discussed are strategies for approaching executive deficits which might interfere with reading comprehension, writing and mathematics.

This book is highly recommended for parents, educators, psychologists, counselors and any individual involved in the academic, emotional, or cognitive development of young people. Most of the chapters are not light reading and may require time to digest.

As a psychologist with 30 years experience, I have been focusing on issues of attention, memory and cognition, as it relates to self esteeme, performance, and the development of emotional difficulties. The text is more focused on school which is where we developed and where we met our most difficult challenges in performance. It is exciting to see that educators are doing more to help children who are between the special education criterion and the kids who don't have difficulty. It is also important to understand the process of learning so we can better teach to the student rather than the student learning how we teach! This book can help open the educators doors to higher learning.

Great book as it represents the power of translational knowledge. The editor does a good job of integrating sometimes technical and difficult to understand material that is neurologically based into practical understanding and pragmatic applications. While intended for educators, lifetime learners-especially those of an auotdidactic bent, will embellish its treasures discovered herein. For educators, this book is epic in that it helps create a framework to encourage pedagogies that emphasize developing executive functioning skills through out primary and secondary education. Especially, college level educators could benefit from reading this book as knowledge of executive function is very critical to enable adults to learn how to develop and utilize advanced cognitive skills!

Great book and was just what I was looking for to help my students.

My daughter has ADHD inattentive type and LD Executive Function. This book is an excellent resource for practical advice on interventions needed in the classroom. This helped me argue my points effectively during the IEP development process. If only I could get the rest of the IEP team to read it now!
The book is organized by topics that are very well developed. I liked the presentation of practical interventions for people working in education.
