Reviews

“Dawson and Guare have done it again with the second edition of this masterpiece, providing an excellent framework for coaching students of all ages to manage their executive skills challenges. It’s not hyperbole to say that the appendices alone provide more pragmatic support than most books on the topic do in their entirety. Whether discussing the language that builds agency in clients or the use of specific tools, the book is both comprehensive and clear. I highly recommend this guide for anyone who wishes to make a difference with K-12 students.”--Michael Delman, MEd, founder and CEO, Beyond BookSmart-
