“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.”

—Stephen P. Hinshaw, PhD, Department of Psychology, 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, Professor and Chair, Department of Educational Psychology, 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 behaviorally based approach within a collaborative family-school framework.”
