This module briefly discusses organizational skills as components of a larger skill set often referred to as executive functioning (EF). In addition, the module discusses how a team can use the WATI AT assessment process to identify the challenges with EF in four areas of organization: self-management, information management, time management, and materials management. Identifying the problem addresses the first few sections of the AT Decision-Making Guide for Organization, including the student's strengths and challenges, the student's environmental considerations, and identifying and prioritizing tasks the student needs to do. This is done prior to discussing any tools the student may use currently or as recommended solutions. Specific tools for the four areas of organization management (self, information, time and materials) will be discussed in four subsequent modules.
