Programme Description

My child can learn, yet he seems to have difficulty in getting started, staying on task and meeting deadlines”. Does that sound familiar? What could be contributing to these? One of the possible underlying reasons could be that they have executive functioning difficulties.

Through this interactive workshop, participants will learn the key executive functions relevant to managing academic and social demands in schools. Behavioral examples will be provided to illustrate how these functions impact children/adolescents in their everyday school life, with specific reference made to students with ASD.

Two broad categories of strategies will be shared at the workshop. One category will be focusing on environmental accommodations and adaptations that parents can implement to support their children with executive functioning difficulties. The second category will focus on strategies that parents can impart to their children to help them manage these difficulties.

Learning Goals:

Upon completion of the training workshop, participants will be able to:

  • understand the key executive functions and its behavioural manifestations
  • understand how these difficulties are manifested in students with ASD
  • acquire practical support strategies in areas such as setting up a work system, tracking homework completion, filing of study notes and assignments, use of planners to track long assignments and project work

Targeted Audiences

Parents & Caregivers of Individuals with High-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (at Upper Primary Level or Secondary Level or Post-Secondary Level)
