About the Author

Edited by Lynn Meltzer, PhD, Institute for Learning and Development (ILD) and ResearchILD, Lexington, MA, USA; Harvard Graduate School of Education; and Department of Child Development, Tufts University, USA


"From an impressive list of contributing authors, this book goes well beyond the traditional 'frontal lobe metaphor' in describing the executive function construct, challenging its conceptualization as a static, unitary skill. In doing so, the contributors consider the unique roles of brain development, personal experience, and the changing demands and supports in the classroom setting. Not only do Meltzer and colleagues explain the role of executive dysfunction in the classroom, they provide explicit strategies for intervention, with clear teaching examples. Hence, this volume will be a welcome resource for educators, psychologists, and other practitioners." - E. Mark Mahone, Kennedy Krieger Institute, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, USA "Finally, a book that clearly describes the significant role that executive function plays in learning! More importantly, this book presents very practical suggestions for effectively teaching students to use their executive functions. The contributing authors are among the leading experts in the field." - Donald D. Deshler, Center for Research on Learning, University of Kansas, USA
