Succeed at Work: Tools to Support Executive Function (PACER Center)
Wednesday, May 4, 2022
To succeed at a job, one must master some basic skills – being on time, following directions, maintaining focus, and completing tasks. These skills fall in a category called executive function and lay the foundation for being a reliable and productive employee. In this workshop for youth and adults we will explore technology to support executive function at work. Topics will include managing time, staying organized, completing tasks, and maintaining focus. Information presented will be helpful for those new to the workplace, individuals with ADHD (Attention-Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder) or ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), as well as those with other executive function challenges. Join us for demonstrations of devices and mobile apps to include timers, task managers, wearables, and other tools that support productivity at work.
