Executive dysfunction is common in students on the autism spectrum and is linked to academic, social and adaptive difficulties. This conference will provide a new intervention framework, for elementary and middle school aged youth, that focuses on strategies to improve flexibility, goal-setting, and planning. The strategies include accommodations, small group activities, and scripts or vocabulary to promote better executive function. Evidence from recent research will be presented to illustrate improvements in behaviors such as following directions, transition easily, engaging socially, flexibility, and planning. The conference is designed for parents, teachers and other professionals who work with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Registration includes boxed sandwich lunch and refreshments throughout the day. See the flyer for the schedule and other details about the day.
