The Source Development of Executive Functions Second Edition

This second edition is a comprehensive update to the original book. It updates our understanding of executive dysfunction (EDF) and provides a clear structure evaluating and treating EDF. New chapters clarify executive dysfunction as it complicates the academic, social, and communication performance of children with a wide range of disorders. Four new chapters address the problem of how to do executive function (EF) therapy with protocols, rationales, goals, and methods for:

  • building awareness,
  • engineering the environment to support EF skills,
  • developing and teaching compensatory strategies, and
  • engaging in language therapy to support reasoning skills.

This book provides:

  • A framework for the evaluation of EFs and a survey of assessment tools
  • Ready-to-use diagnostic questions, informal evaluation, and observation protocols
  • A helpful Treatment Wheel graphic, organizing the range of treatment options, from external modifications and strategies to direct intervention for EDF and reasoning deficits
  • Sample intervention goals
