The 3 Global Elements
A core concept of this approach is that the personís cognitive performance level is based on 3 global elements of cognitive functioning rather than scores on cognitive sub-skills. It is the awareness and management of these 3 global elements that indicate how independent a person will be.
The 3 global elements of functional cognitive activity are:
Interpersonal relationships: self awareness, social skills, comprehension, self regulation
Environment: physical space, personal awareness, body scheme, safety awareness
Time parameters: orientation, time limits,schedules, estimating time, multi-tasking, project deadlines
