Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

A metacognitive model was developed based on functional cognition and the existing literature, with the aim of promoting independence in everyday functioning among individuals with ASD. This study examines an application of the proposed model among adolescents with ASD, in the context of conducting a shopping errand in the community. Results show evidence of significantly greater improvement for the group receiving the functional cognitive intervention in comparison to the control group.
