This book presents an innovative model for supporting executive function in students with attention, memory, organization, planning, inhibition, initiative, and flexibility difficulties, including those with ADHD, ADD, autism spectrum disorders and related conditions. The author advocates a student-centred approach in which educators first explore 8 key 'ingredients' with the student: relationships; strengths and weaknesses; self-advocacy and responsibility; review and preview; motivation and incentive; synthesis and analysis; rhythm and routine; and practice and repetition. She provides a step-by-step explanation of how these 'ingredients' can then be used in different ways and in different combinations to successfully address particular areas of difficulty. The approach is clearly explained, and the book contains many useful examples, practical tips and strategies, suggested conversation starters, sample time management plans and other tools that can be adapted to meet the particular needs of individual students. Original and effective, the approach outlined in this book will be of interest to teachers and other professionals involved in supporting executive function in students of all ages, as well as parents and carers.

(Grades 2-6) Why Does Studying Have to Be So Difficult? Some children become overly stressed at the simple mention of a test, while others avoid thinking about it at all. Neither approach is healthy. Having good study skills can make a huge difference when it comes to succeeding in both school and in life. However, good study skills are not innate, they must be taught, embraced and cultivated. When children learn the correct way to study, they develop effective skills that can lead to a greater chance of success later in life. Polar opposites, Cletus and Bocephus become study partners Bocephus over studies and stresses about every assignment and test. Cletus studies as little as possible and puts off any preparation until the night before. Knowing that neither approach is effective, Cletus' mom introduces them to powerful, hands-on, study tips called, The Amazing Great 8 The boys then learn how good study skills can affect not only their grades, but also their attitudes and results.

Bruno Latour has written a unique and wonderful tale of a technological dream gone wrong. As the young engineer and professor follow Aramis' trail--conducting interviews, analyzing documents, assessing the evidence--perspectives keep shifting: the truth is revealed as multilayered, unascertainable, comprising an array of possibilities worthy of Rashomon. The reader is eventually led to see the project from the point of view of Aramis, and along the way gains insight into the relationship between human beings and their technological creations. This charming and profound book, part novel and part sociological study, is Latour at his thought-provoking best.

Wendell HAS to win at everything, and if he doesn't, he whines about it. This creative story addresses two very challenging topics: winning and whining. When Wendell has one of those days where nothing seems to go his way, his mom helps him understand that everything in life doesn't have to be a contest and that losing does not make you a loser. In fact, it can make you stronger! She also points out that although it feels great to celebrate a win, winning isn't everything, and whining about things just makes it worse. "Whiners aren't winners, and winners never whine. You can't win at everything all of the time!"
