EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONING SKILLS: WHAT ARE THEY AND WHY ARE THEY IMPORTANT
Presented by Seattle Children’s
Instructors: Rosalind Oti, PhD, and Rachel Montague, PhD
Drs. Rosalind Oti and Rachel Montague, clinical psychologists at Seattle Children’s Autism Center, will define and discuss executive functioning skills and their development across the lifespan. They will also discuss how executive functioning deficits play a significant role in social, academic and behavioral functioning, especially for individuals with autism spectrum disorders. They will also discuss evidence-based ideas for intervention, research-based information and ideas for accommodations for individuals with executive functioning deficits.
