    The Chandler papers have been updated with a section on Executive functions and reference
    it is interesting that Barkeley is quoted. Barkley sees Executive function deficits as a performance deficit while Chandler sees them as a skills deficit with medications not really helping

    Very interesting article. Now I know for a FACT that my difficult child has these deficits - - it was just never diagnosis in the past and should have been (just like I think she is on the Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) spectrum).

    Thank you for posting this information Allen.

    Metacognition - thinking about thinking , checking on your thinking , is related to executive functions

    Ross Greene says that if a kid develops good problem solving skills, can think of several solutions to one problem , they are less likely to become frustrated
