Executive Function Workshop
Brenda Smith Myles, Ph.D.
April 11, 2016 - Indianapolis, IN
Indiana Resource Center for Autism
In Collaboration with the MSD of Lawrence Township
The newly defined 21st Century Skills recognized the importance of executive function skills to life success. Deficits in executive functioning mean students struggle with planning, being organized, following multi-step directions, time management, combining information from several sources to problem solve, and their working memory, among other things. 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, the speaker will describe evidence-based interventions and supports that can be implemented to help individuals on the spectrum develop and use the diverse skills known as executive function.
