I don't think I understand what it is, what "difficulties" with EF look like, and how it might be weaving in and out of the fabric of our lives without us even realizing it.
I recently ran across a report that I probably should've paid more attention to at the time, but had other things on my mind, and I'm wondering what good next steps would be. I somehow missed that my ds8 scored pretty low on every single scale in the Comprehensive Executive Functioning Inventory (CEFI): attention, emotion regulation, flexibility, organization, planning, self-monitoring, working memory, etc. Many of these seem (at least in part) similar to struggles that I associate with his ASD-2 dx
He's / We've been struggling a lot with life in general lately, and I'm wondering if there are things I can do to at least make some things easier.
One point that I find very confusing is that he scored well on the "Selected Executive Functions" similarities, block design, and child trails B (whatever those are!) They are in the same section as his WISC and WRAML results (all of which were in the superior / very superior range), and not in the same section as his very low CEFI results (most of which were between the 9th %ile and the 20th %ile)
I don't really know how to interpret this, and any insight would be appreciated!
