Students with autism and related disabilities often struggle with executive function (EF) skills. The good news for parents and educators is that EF skills can be taught. Furthermore, students can be taught to select and use strategies for building EF skills independently, leading to greater self-determination and success in school and life after school. Teaching through a gradual release of responsibility, teachers can prepare students to use strategies effectively across environments.
