Description

Do you do too much for your kid out of fear they will never make it in the world without your oversight? Are you frustrated or worried about your 'tween, teen, or young adult who seems lazy or unmotivated? Do you see your child unable to reach their potential because they are disorganized, scattered, and can't manage their time? In Your Kid's Gonna Be Okay: Building the Executive Function Skills Your Child Needs in the Age of Attention, Michael Delman tackles the big worries that keep parents awake at night. In a conversational tone informed by deeply-rooted expertise, Delman illustrates how to connect meaningfully with your child and encourage habits that lead to success in school -- and in life. Your Kid's Gonna Be Okay helps parents understand the critical skills needed for effective self-management and provides specific strategies and tools to help kids become motivated, accountable, and independent. Through engaging stories that illustrate how we all build Executive Function skills, Delman demonstrates how kids can change their habits as they pave their own path toward competence today and confidence in their future. Parents of kids with ADHD or other learning differences - or parents worried about how their child can manage distractions will benefit from Delman's experience as an educator, an Executive Function coach, and as a parent.

Author Biography

Michael Delman provides the guiding vision for Beyond BookSmart and has pioneered their revolutionary approach to teaching students Executive Function skills. Massachusetts Distinguished Educator Michael Delman founded Beyond BookSmart, previously Thinking Outside the Classroom, in 2006 and serves as its CEO. An educator since 1991, Michael's primary mission has always been to make learning relevant and to help young people discover and develop their strengths. His undergraduate degree is from Brown University and he earned his Master's in Education from Lesley University. Michael originated the application of Dr. James Prochaska's Transtheoretical Model of Change to help students improve academic performance. Beyond BookSmart's adaptation of this evidence-based model of behavior change has been endorsed by Dr. Prochaska. A dynamic presenter, Michael has been a featured speaker on Executive Function skills as they relate to academic success at the 2018 national Learning Disabilities Association conference, Lynn University Transitions Conference, Mass Mentor Northeast Regional, Association of Experiential Education, GISHA Conference, Independent Educational Consultants Association, Parents of Accelerated Learners in NYC, and to numerous neuropsychological practices and schools throughout the country. With over 300 Executive Function coaches, Beyond BookSmart has branches in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Florida. Michael has also led the way in establishing on-line Executive Function coaching both nationally and internationally. Michael is the co-founder of the McAuliffe Regional Charter Public School in Framingham, Massachusetts, a middle school in its 12th year of operation teaching over 350 students through the Expeditionary Learning Outward Bound school model. He served as McAuliffe's founding principal and has served as an active member of its Board of Trustees since 2008. Prior to that, Michael taught in the Southborough Public Schools for eight years, during which time he received the Anti-Defamation League's Teacher Incentive Award for creating a superior learning environment for his students.
