This groundbreaking book offers a comprehensive theory of executive functioning (EF) with important clinical implications. Synthesizing cutting-edge neuropsychological and evolutionary research, Russell A. Barkley presents a model of EF that is rooted in meaningful activities of daily life. He describes how abilities such as emotion regulation, self-motivation, planning, and working memory enable people to pursue both personal and collective goals that are critical to survival. Key stages of EF development are identified and the far-reaching individual and social costs of EF deficits detailed. Barkley explains specific ways that his model may support much-needed advances in assessment and treatment. See also Barkley's empirically based, ecologically valid assessment tools: Barkley Deficits in Executive Functioning Scale (BDEFS for Adults) and Barkley Deficits in Executive Functioning Scale--Children and Adolescents (BDEFS-CA).

    You can definitely add a lot of product variants for Squarespace's e-commerce product function, but I'm not entirely sure if you can go beyond 70 variations. Based on Squarespace's support guide, it didn't say that there is a limit? I'd be interested to know though Р have you tried asking their support team?

      I'm not sure what you mean by case lots, but you can pack many books in a box. I don't recall the limit, but it's approximately 25 pounds to the box.
