This thorough and informative infographic on executive function from Understood is a re-design of a similar infographic by the National Center for Learning Disabilities before it reorganized and became Understood.

I have always liked this infographic very much because executive function is one of the key areas related to my son’s autism and with which the Navigator has consistently experienced challenges.

This infographic describes it so well!

These are the things we work on the most to help the Navigator develop tools and strategies to tackle this challenge with the goal is to give him what he needs to be able to succeed at what ever he wants to do – just like any parent.

I also signed up for regular email updates from Understood because I liked what I saw and highly recommend exploring their site.
