Used on its own or in tandem with the popular Unstuck and On Target! classroom curriculum, this practical guide shows how to embed executive function instruction in dozens of everyday scenarios, from morning routines to getting homework done. Designed for therapists, teachers, and parents, these highly effective techniques give children the skills they need to navigate each day, reach their goals, and succeed inside and outside the classroom. THIS BOOK HELPS YOU: Understand executive function-why it's important and why it's challenging for children with autism Teach three skills critical to success: flexibility, goal setting, and organization Use consistent scripts and key words to help children process your message Model desired behaviors -and fade your guidance as children generalize skills Provide simple, effective visual cues that keep kids unstuck and on target Keep it fun and positive, with tips on creative, playful ways to teach executive function skills PRACTICAL MATERIALS: Dozens of specific, easy-to-do examples; "Goal, Plan, Do, Check" scripts and worksheets that break down tasks into small, achievable chunks; key words and phrases that help kids stay on target; reproducible visual aids; sample IEP goals.
