Organizational Skills

The focus of our executive functioning program is on teaching several skills that foster planning and organization.  A person with autism learns executive functioning skills differently, taking into account sensory, motor, and social issues.  Our executive functioning program targets skills that follow appropriate developmental milestones in a sequential order, allowing our youngest learners to build on the foundational skills needed to continue to learn and grow as they transition to more complex situations.

For early learners, we may focus on fundamental daily skills such as:

  • Following routines

  • Staying focused

  • Remembering information

  • Controlling impulses

For older children, we may focus on: 

  • Planning and organizing time and materials

  • Regulating emotions

Daily living skills for adolescents and young adults may include:​

  • Completing work by deadlines

  • Using a calendar for organizing events 

  • Completing checklists
