"This second edition of Unstuck and On Target! provides educators with explicit ideas to help students with weaknesses in executive functioning improve their skills in organization, planning, self-monitoring, and goal setting. The carefully devised curriculum (which is laced with a bit of humor) stresses the importance of flexibility and provides a systematic action plan for teaching students the critical skills, key strategies, and specific routines they will need to confront and overcome many of school's social and academic challenges." --Nancy Mather, Ph.D.
