Few adults may know the clinical definition of executive functioning, but parents and educators who interact with a child (or adult) with developmental delays can easily relate to words like disorganized, chronically late, forgetful or impulsive. The label might be Asperger s or ADHD or learning disabilities. These are the often bright kids who seem to never be able to corral their knowledge to meet deadlines or specific assignments. Homework? No problem. Turning it in--well, that s another story. Science lab project? An easy A, if only he didn t leave it to the very last minute to complete.

Late, Lost, and Unprepared delves deeply into the world of executive functioning skills, explaining their role in learning and in critical life skills: time management, impulse control (in words and deeds), cognitive flexibility, and initiation, planning and organizing, among others. Part I of the book widens understanding about EF skills in general, including assessing your child or student s abilities. Part II, the what you can do about it section is page after page of positive strategies, highly practical tips and case studies that cement concepts and learning. A well-organized, well-written book that s sure to become a well-used addition to your home or professional library. --Autism Asperger's Digest, January/February 2009 --Autism Asperger's Digest, January/February 2009
