Hayes, Gillian; Hosaflook, Stephen
National Professional Resources, Inc.
This six-page (tri-fold) laminated reference guide by Gillian Hayes and Stephen Hosaflook 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. "Technology for Transition and Postsecondary Success" identifies and describes how to use a spectrum of helpful technological tools in creative ways to support the transition to postsecondary education or employment. These include: (1) Digital calendars; (2) To-Do list applications; (3) Productivity software; (4) Meditation and mindfulness applications; and (5) Monitoring applications for self-regulation. The guide also provides tips for using technology appropriately--including mobile device and email etiquette--and staying safe online.
