Teaching Executive Functioning Skills to Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder defines and summarizes executive functioning skills that include behaviors necessary for achieving goals, such as attention, flexibility, memory, problem solving, organization, planning, self-management, and time management. Because there are a myriad of other more pressing skills that require immediate attention in those with ASD, the lack of these executive functioning skills can go unnoticed and unaddressed. Applying recent applied behavior analysis research and rationale, this book will provide practical strategies for teaching individuals with ASD to be focused, organized, flexible, and able to effectively manage themselves.
