Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) are likely to experience vulnerabilities related to executive functioning, meaning that they may struggle with flexibility, planning, self-monitoring, and self-control, working memory, time management, and organization. Difficulties with these cognitive tasks can result in significant anxiety, poor self-esteem, and limited independence for individuals with I/DD. However, there are many strategies that can be used within all practice settings (group homes, schools, therapy sessions, etc.) that can provide support for executive functioning in people with I/DD. The trainer will utilize case studies and research to describe key executive functions that are impacted by I/DD, contextualize common challenges in terms of how they are related to executive functioning vulnerabilities, and share strategies and resources about environmental supports that can support individuals who struggle with executive functioning.
