The title of my assessment is broadly titled, “Executive Function Assessment.” and to get started, I would like to go over a few objectives for what I want to cover here in the next hour. 

Objectives

The first thing, and this will take probably the majority of our time, is comparing and contrasting methods that are currently being used to assess executive function.  This is not meant to be a comprehensive list.  It is to give you an overview of what is being done out in practice, which professionals are administering them, and what are some of the similarities and differences between them.  You may or may not be familiar with all of them, and that is quite all right because there are quite a few that are out there.  There are also a lot of very good measures that we will not cover today as well.  I hope no one is offended if a measure that you like really well is not on this list.

 I do want to preface this talk by saying that my work and this talk in particular is geared toward adults.  I know that there is a lot interest in assessing executive function in children, but that has not been an area of my expertise.  Adults seem to be where executive function assessment is employed right now.  That is where the content of this talk will go.
