Research has identified a pattern with ADHD and ASD. Namely, children who have been diagnosed with ASD also tend to have ADHD. The link between these two disorders is found with the Executive Function feature.


Craig and colleagues (2016) reviewed and synthesized previous research examining executive functioning, autism spectrum disorder, and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. The researchers concluded: “The identification of neurocognitive endophenotype in children with ASD, ADHD or ASD + ADHD could play an important role for the treatment implication because EF cognitive training may change the underlying neural mechanisms to improve the real-world function or clinical symptoms.”


In this week’s written assignment, you are to consider the quotation above. In so doing, it will be necessary to discuss executive functioning, as well as the impact of deficits in executive functioning. Additionally, consider cognitive training: what is this? How does it happen? Is this something that could be integrated when working with terminally ill children/adolescents to aid in fostering a more positive experience?


This assignment should be submitted as a Word document and include the following: (a) title page, (b) paper narrative, and (c) reference list. The final document should adhere to APA 7th edition formatting requirements.
