Curly Hair Project Webinar Executive Functions

Executive function is the set of mental skills that help people get things done. The skills include: working memory, organisation, planning, prioritising, starting and completing tasks, flexible thinking and impulse control. Executive function is often impaired in autistic people and has big consequences on all aspects of their life. ‘Difficult’ and ‘challenging’ behaviours can be caused by impaired executive function.
