This six-page (tri-fold) laminated reference guide focuses on readily available tools for augmenting and supporting the development of executive function skills, such as time and task management, organization, and self-regulation.
These skills are crucial for accomplishing a variety of transition-related goals, including carrying out the daily routines that enable people to function autonomously, enroll in and be successful in postsecondary school, and obtain and excel at a job.

... Digital calendars;
... To-Do list applications;
