From struggling students to academic all-stars, everyone can do better in school. Research shows that executive functions such as focus and organisation are more valuable to school performance than intelligence or talent. Happily, these functions are skills, so students can learn them.

This book provides ten tools to improve executive functioning, described as "mental apps," with clever names like the Pizza Cutter and the Channel Changer. Featuring kid-friendly art and instructions, plenty of examples, practice assignments, and a playful tone, this book can provide an academic boost to any student.

Key features:

  • Ten tools help students improve executive functions such as focus, motivation, organisation, self-monitoring, and more
  • Based on proven brain research
  • Great for kids with LD, with disorders such as ADHD, and on the autism spectrum
