"Delman’s highly personalized writing and storytelling – from his years of experience as an Executive Function coach and from his many years of being a parent – not only clarifies what is actually meant by the term, “Executive Function,” but also, explains in remarkably accessible terms and with enlightening anecdotes, how to foster these essential neurocognitive skills in children and adolescents as they face the increasingly demanding “curriculum” of their daily lives. Without a doubt, teaching kids these Executive Function skills is equivalent to giving them the tools they need in their efforts to meet the demands of their teachers and parents. This book gives adults the tools they need to empower children and adolescents to meet their “bosses’” expectations."
“Finally, a book that tackles both the emotional and cognitive issues of executive functioning! This book offers the extraordinary gift of knowledge, wisdom, and empathy for parents and educators who are struggling to understand the child with executive function weaknesses. Michael Delman – who has years of experience motivating children to achieve their best – has crafted a masterful resource that deconstructs the complex issues in executive function skills. It provides a wonderful roadmap for parents seeking answers by explaining the unique way children may engage in the world while giving practical solutions to overcome these challenges.”
“Michael Delman expertly and empathically applies the Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change to guide parents in helping their children progress through the Stages of Change to enhance their Executive Functions.“
"Delman draws on deep veins of experience—as a parent, teacher, and executive function coach—to produce a book that captures both the daily challenge of parenting and his optimistic view that most kids turn out okay. Written with humor and compassion, he masterfully uses personal stories to bring his advice and strategies to life. Enjoy the book for the stories and the humor—but bookmark the strategies, because you’ll want to access them quickly as teachable moments arise and beg for a creative response."
