Executive Functioning Skills Group

September 20, 2023, 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

There are two hands holding up an array of symbols that represent various aspects of executive functioning

Skills Groups are skill development workshops that are facilitated by two Sinneave staff members (one is an autistic self-advocate). In each 90-minute workshop, participants learn a variety of strategies that are foundational to success in various aspects of daily life. They are then given opportunities to practice the strategies with the support of the facilitators and other group members.

Skills Group sessions happen once a week for six consecutive weeks. The next Executive Functioning group begins Wednesday, September 6 and runs through October 11, 2023.

Do you:

  • Struggle with unexpected changes?
  • Have trouble getting started, or maybe have trouble stopping things you like to do when it’s time to do something you don’t like to do?
  • Have you ever avoided an experience or a person because of your anxiety?
  • How about when you have a great idea, but have trouble creating and acting on a plan to get it done.

If so, learning more about Executive Functioning (EF) may be for you. Research has shown us that the skills underlying Executive Functioning can be taught, practiced and improved on. When EF Skills are working, we tend to be happier and more productive. We are excited to invite self-advocates and individuals who identify as autistic to attend this six part workshop on Executive Functioning (EF). We will discuss and practice skills including: Cognitive Flexibility, Getting Started, Staying Present, Bringing your Anxiety along for the Ride, and Organization/Planning.

Participants will learn about the importance of EF and how to improve EF skills through specific practice within a safe and supportive environment.

Please note: Skills Groups are closed groups with a limited number of participants to allow for the greatest participation.
