Group Learning Session- Executive Functions
Parents hear it all the time: your kid won’t start his work; he’s lazy, disorganized, and Forgetful to a chronic degree. Mornings are a nightmare, don’t even mention homework! People are trying to convince you your child is choosing to be difficult; your gut tells you otherwise. Thank goodness for the intuitive parent! The ability to plan, organize, remember, initiate tasks, transition fro one thing to another and manage our emotions are all related to EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONS. (EF) In many people with ASD, Executive Functions are impaired. People with this neurological challenge are labelled as difficult ,wilful, stubborn, but don’t believe it: those with Executive Dysfunction have to work incredibly hard just to get through the day. This Group Leaning session will discuss more about this neurological difference that can make managing school such a challenge for children with autism — regardless of their level of intelligence. We aim to raise your understanding of Executive Function

Group Learning Session- Executive Functions
Parents hear it all the time: your kid won’t start his work; he’s lazy, disorganized, and Forgetful to a chronic degree. Mornings are a nightmare, don’t even mention homework! People are trying to convince you your child is choosing to be difficult; your gut tells you otherwise. Thank goodness for the intuitive parent! The ability to plan, organize, remember, initiate tasks, transition fro one thing to another and manage our emotions are all related to EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONS. (EF) In many people with ASD, Executive Functions are impaired. People with this neurological challenge are labelled as difficult ,wilful, stubborn, but don’t believe it: those with Executive Dysfunction have to work incredibly hard just to get through the day. This Group Leaning session will discuss more about this neurological difference that can make managing school such a challenge for children with autism — regardless of their level of intelligence. We aim to raise your understanding of Executive Function
