Individuals with autism have deficits in executive function skills. These include paying attention, organizing, planning and prioritizing, starting tasks and staying focused on them to completion, cognitive flexibility (the ability to handle changes), regulating emotions and self-monitoring (keeping track of what you're doing). These skills are necessary for individuals to be successful in educational settings, seeking and keeping employment and initiating and maintaining relationships. This session will explore strategies and tools that can be used to address executive functioning skills in the classroom, at home or on the job. -----CEU Code TAEFS01-----
