Executive Functioning strategy: backwards planning

Kids diagnosed with ADHD, Aspergers, learning differences or higher verbal autism often can appear unmotivated because they do not understand how to organize a sequence in their brain of how to start and complete the task. I use this strategy, backwards planning to help them visualize what the end result should look like. By teaching a process and starting with the end in mind their anxiety can go down significantly. These great dry erase boards are made by Sarah Ward and Kristen Jacobsen of Cognitive Connections. This is called Get Ready* Do* Done.
