Executive Functions and Social

Challenges with planning may result in double booking, forgetting to meet someone, or consistently show up late, which may be perceived as disrespectful by others or may make others feel unimportant. Challenges with organization can infringe on others space and time (e.g. roommates, siblings), which can result in frustration and sometimes resentment. Challenges with cognitive flexibility can present as stubbornness, defiance, or lack of empathy.
