Description:  

The 21st Century Skills have recognized the importance of executive function skill to school success. Indeed, it can be argued that executive function skills underlie all life success. The multiple aspects of executive function skills underlie all life success. The multiple aspects of executive function challenges that impact home, school, community, and employment will be described with examples that relate to each of these environments. In addition, evidence-based interventions and supports that can be implemented to help individuals on the spectrum develop will be described.

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to :

  1. Define executive function and its relationship to autism spectrum disorder;
  2. Describe how executive function impacts autistic individuals in the home, school, and community;
  3. Identify interventions that can be used to teach and support executive function.
