A metacognitive model was developed based on functional cognition and the existing literature, with the aim of promoting independence in everyday functioning among individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This study examines an application of the proposed model among adolescents with ASD, in the context of conducting a shopping errand in the community. Results show evidence of significantly greater improvement for the group receiving the functional cognitive intervention in comparison with the control group.
