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 offers activities that will help teens better understand their disorder and cope with it effectively. With one chapter for each of the ten main areas of EFD, the book also includes tips for initiating positive action and change, improving flexibility in thinking, sustaining attention, organizing, planning, enhancing memory, managing emotions, and building self-awareness. Written in a fun, engaging format, this book is designed to motivate and inspire teens to carry out and complete tasks with ease.

Stimulate neurologically-impaired clients' executive functioning with activities that use relevant content, themed around home activities and home maintenance. Written in the best-selling format of the WALC series, Executive Functioning includes reproducible exercises and activities that can be used in individual or group situations. Many of the tasks involve working memory, which taps into the client's general knowledge base, and encourages the client to ask others for help or to use whatever is available to gain the information they need to answer a question accurately.Most of the tasks provide answers for the client to choose from, which stimulates two specific thinking processes: First, it causes the client to evaluate all of the choices to determine whether the provided items fit the question, giving the client practice with self-analyzing and selection based on fact and appropriateness. Second, as these exercises were not developed for word finding or memory for general information improvement, the client won't be penalized if he has those deficits along with executive thinking deficits.Many of the items have multiple appropriate answers, which gives the client practice with thought flexibility.Many of the exercises have already been answered and the client must analyze whether the selected response was accurate. This provides practice with meta-cognitive skills for identifying, analyzing and planning.Several exercises have no right or wrong answers, as the responses will be based on the client's subjective opinions and preferences.Many of the tasks will assist the client in developing decision-making skills, based on fact as opposed to unverified opinions.
