Evaluation [of] the effectiveness of a cognitive approach for teaching domestic chores to adolescents and adults with autism [abstract]
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Individuals with autism often have difficulty transitioning into adulthood due decreased executive functioning. One important skill which assists in the transition into adulthood is the ability to complete various domestic chores. These tasks often require executive functioning skills such as initiation, planning and organization, and problem solving which individuals with autism often have difficulty with. Currently, there is limited research on effective teaching techniques for supporting individuals with autism in the acquisition of skills needed for independent living. This study aims to determine if the Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance (CO-OP) is an effective intervention approach for improving problem solving skills.
