This session provided an opportunity to learn about intervention activities to address disorders related to executive function and pragmatics. Today there are a variety of activities and means to target an individual's ability to attend, interact with others, plan, organize, problem solve and execute within daily activities. We presented and had discussion centered around process based and participation based activities, what the evidence shows us, and how we can support our clients with becoming more independent in their desired activities by focusing on the areas of executive function and pragmatics. A variety of materials, activities, and applications that can be used were discussed.
