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.
