To succeed at a job, we first need to master some basic skills – being on time, following directions, maintaining focus, and completing tasks. These skills fall in a category referred to as executive function and lay the foundation for being a reliable and productive employee.
In this workshop for youth and adults we will explore how technology can support executive function at work. Topics discussed will include managing time, staying organized, remembering instructions, 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 to see demonstrations of devices and mobile apps that will include timers, task managers, wearables, smart pens, and other tools that support focus on the job.
