Executive Function Series: Session 2 Developing Cognitive Flexibility for Students with Autism and Intellectual Disabilities

Executive Function Series: Executive functioning and self-regulation — recalling relevant information to complete a task, filtering out distractions and exercising self-regulation, and adapting and adjusting to changing demands — are particularly challenging for students with significant communication, behavioral and cognitive needs. This webinar series will discuss support strategies to develop and strengthen executive function and self-regulation skills and compensate for any deficit areas to enable academic and life success.

Session 2: Students with autism and intellectual disabilities often find it challenging to adjust to changes in strategies, shifting focus from one task to another, transitioning to different environments and personnel, changes in routine, etc. This webinar session will discuss how to compensate for any deficit areas using student and context-specific examples and help students to develop cognitive flexibility to adapt to different rules in different settings, be flexible and apply varied strategies to work out a problem or to resolve a conflict with others.

Transition Techniques for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: Transform Meltdown to Calm-down

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) experience frequent melt-downs in transitioning from one activity to another, from one environment to another, and sometimes, from one person to another. These behavioral challenges result in a multitude of negative consequences for the child, instructional and support staff serving the child, the instructional setting, peers, and the family.

The webinar session will examine multiple transitions that occur during a typical school day and classroom activities and demonstrate research-supported strategies and transition techniques and tools to prevent transition meltdowns. Augmented with student and context-specific applications to use across situations, the session will demonstrate how to prevent transition meltdowns to better support children with ASD to make a smooth transition from one activity/environment to another. Participants will gain skills in using positive intervention strategies to provide environmental, visual and structural support aided with technology to help students with ASD.

Choice Making…There’s An App For That (And More)!

Many children with Autism (and other disabilities) may have a communication deficit. Choice making is a powerful form of communication. Providing opportunities to make choices is an appropriate strategy to use with people of all ages in a variety of contexts (home, school, community). Choice making can also be effective in improving desirable behaviors while decreasing and eliminating undesirable behaviors. Allowing a child to make a choice can promote independence and give a child a sense of control over his or her daily activities. AbleNet's FREE app SoundingBoard not only has many preloaded free boards, but also has the ability to create your own. I will demonstrate ideas of how to use this app (for more the choice making), how to create your own choice board, and other apps as well.
