"Commonly used ADHD treatments such as medication and parent management training have only a minimal impact on children's organizational skills. Based on a decade of high-quality research, this is the first evidence-based guide for treating organizational skills deficits in this population. Professionals learn how to implement the intervention in collaboration with children, parents, and teachers. Application of this approach will surely improve the lives of children with ADHD."--Jeffrey M.
