Session 1: Late, Lost and Unprepared: Effective Strategies for Teaching Self-Management and Organizational Skills to Students with Executive Function Deficits
Students who struggle with deficits in Executive Functioning may exhibit difficulties at home with organization, remembering homework, and initiating or completing tasks. In school, they may have difficulty memorizing facts, writing essays or reports, working complex math problems, completing long-term projects, or being on time.
Executive Functioning deficits don’t have to cause frustration, disappointment and defeat in your child’s life – or in yours. There are some very specific and effective ways to help students develop built-in supports and routines to help compensate for deficits in organizational skills.
Please join us for a panel discussion on building effective strategies for assisting students who struggle with organization, time, and self-management skills. Panelists include Dr. Ethan Schafer, Clinical Psychologist; Jason Culp, Head of Upper School; and Dianne Wilson, Learning Resource Center Coordinator. Ample time for individual questions will be provided.

Sometimes I think I like sameness more than my son does. That's why a persistent hindrance to increased independence for autistic kids like my son Leo is parents like me overlooking opportunities for self-care and competence. Sometimes this happens because we find it quicker and easier to take care of breakfast preparation or our kids' tooth brushing ourselves, sometimes because in our day-to-day rush we forget to check in and see if new skills have emerged.
It takes effort and vigilance to give Leo the chances he needs to demonstrate competence.

Students with disabilities require unique support in the online learning environment. Many higher education instructors assume that all materials available online are accessible to all students (Cook, 2002).
CONCLUSIONS: Youth with an ASD have poor postsecondary employment and education outcomes, especially in the first 2 years after high school. Those from lower-income families and those with greater functional impairments are at heightened risk for poor outcomes. Further research is needed to understand how transition planning before high school exit can facilitate a better connection to productive postsecondary activities.
