Autism and Everyday Executive Function: A Strengths-Based Approach for Improving Attention, Memory, Organization and Flexibility
Focusing on children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), this insightful book presents an innovative model for developing and strengthening everyday executive function, building a strong foundation for social and communication skills.
This book explores the ways that individuals with ASD make sense of the world , and highlights eight approaches or 'Autism Access Points' that set the stage for strong executive skills.
The authors explain how these Autism Access Points can be used to improve executive function skills in areas such as organisation, time management, memory, attention, initiative, control and goal setting.
This clear, user-friendly book provides helpful insights into autistic learning styles and sensory experiences, and will increase understanding of how people with ASD process thoughts, emotions and actions. This book provides a wonderful translation between autistic and neurotypical experiences, helping individuals with ASD to develop executive function skills, and will also provide useful insights for the people supporting them, such as teachers, therapists, parents and caregivers.
