How can you help kids with autism be flexible, get organized, and work toward goals, not just in school but in everyday life? It's all about executive function, and this quick problem-solving guide helps you explicitly teach these critical skills to high-funcitoning children with autism (Grades K - 8). 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 secenarios, 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: flexitilbity, goal setting, and organizaiton; use consistent scripts and key words to help chidlren process your message; model desired behaviours, and fade your guidance as children generalize skills; and provide simple, effective visual cues that keep kids unstuck and on target.

Contains dozens of specific, easy-to-do examples: "Goal, Plan, Do, Check" scripts and worksheets that break down tasks into small, achievable chunks; key works and phrases that help kids stay on target; reproducible visual aids, and Sample IEP goals.
