For children with ADHD in grades 1-6, problems with homework have been shown to contribute to academic skills deficits, underachievement, and significant levels of parent-child conflict. This manual presents the first empirically supported homework intervention approach specifically developed for families coping with ADHD. Grounded in a solid theoretical and empirical rationale, the book provides detailed instructions for setting up the program, recruiting and selecting participants, and conducting each of the seven sessions. Practitioners learn how to implement specialized instructional and behavioral interventions to facilitate collaborative home-school relationships, foster effective study skills and work habits, and enhance family functioning and children's self-esteem. Special features include detailed case examples; checklists for monitoring the integrity of interventions; recruiting instruments and outcome measures; and helpful parent handouts. Ideal for use with groups of parents and children, or with one family at a time, this manual is an invaluable resource for school psychologists and counselors, clinical child psychologists and other mental health practitioners, and special education professionals.


Industry Reviews

'Authoritative and thorough. This book is both empirically supported and clinically sensitive. It provides needed rigor and integration to help meet the clear need for consolidated efforts between home and school for youth with ADHD.' - Steven Hinshaw, PhD, University of California, Berkeley 'This book provides a practical road map for anyone wishing to implement a successful homework program for children and their families. It is designed for students with ADHD, but its applications are not limited to this group alone. The ideas and procedures could be used with just about any student having homework problems. The book is a treasure trove of practical ideas, covering everything from implementing positive motivational strategies, to assessing problems, to troubleshooting, follow-up, and family support. Anyone working with students who are having academic difficulties should have this valuable book.' - William R. Jenson, PhD, University of Utah 'This book presents an innovative program that is ideal for implementation when homework has become a frustrating battle that nobody wins. The assessment measures, session scripts, treatment integrity checklists, and parent handouts provided will enable practitioners to quickly get the Homework Success program up and running in their schools or clinics. Clear and informative, the book does an excellent job of demonstrating how to incorporate a behaviourally based approach within a collaborative family school framework.' - Leslie Rescorla, PhD, Bryn Mawr College
