Description

This positive guide provides a science-based program for promoting teens’ independence by building their executive skills—the fundamental brain-based abilities needed to get organized, stay focused, and control impulses and emotions. Executive skills experts Drs. Richard Guare and Peg Dawson are joined by Colin Guare, a young adult who has successfully faced these issues himself. Learn step-by-step strategies to help your teen live up to his or her potential now and in the future—while making your relationship stronger. Helpful worksheets and forms can be reproduced and printed in a convenient 8½” x 11″ size.
