- The Delis-Kaplan Executive Function System (D-KEFS) includes nine subtests: Trail-Making, Verbal Fluency, Design Fluency, Color-Word Interference, Card Sorting, Twenty Questions, Word Context, Tower, and Proverb.
- The NIH Toolbox Assessment of Neurological and Behavioral Function, executive function battery is a set of computerized assessments that measure: (a) Inhibitory control (Flanker Inhibitory Control and Attention Test); (b) Working Memory (List Sorting Working Memory Test); (c) Cognitive Flexibility (Dimensional Change Card Sort Test).
- The NIH Toolbox Processing Speed assesses the time it takes to process a set amount of information. It yields a main endpoint score.
- The Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function for Adults (BRIEF-A) includes 75 items that yield 9 clinical scales grouped into two indexes: Behavioral Regulation and Metacognition.

- Neurocognitive - social cognition [ Time Frame: baseline ]
- The "Reading the Mind in the Eyes" Task (revised) is a computer-administered task assessing mental state attribution.
- The Advanced Clinical Solutions for WAIS-IV and WMS IV (ACS) is a set of tasks that assess aspects of social cognition, such as affect labeling, affect recognition from faces and prosody, identification of sarcasm, and the ability to verbalize intent of a speaker.
- The Autism Spectrum Quotient is a self-report questionnaire covering five domains of autism spectrum disorder: social skills, communication skills, imagination, attention to detail, and attention switching/tolerance of change
- Neurocognitive - memory [ Time Frame: baseline ]
- The NIH Toolbox Picture Sequence Memory Test evaluates episodic memory.
- The Wechsler Memory Scale IV (WMS-IV) provides a comprehensive evaluation of memory abilities in adults, including auditory, visual, immediate, and delayed memory
- mental health - social relatedness [ Time Frame: baseline ]The NIH Toolbox Emotion Domain - The Social Relationships subdomain measures will be administered.
- Employment status [ Time Frame: baseline ]Categories from the National health interview survey and Hollingshead four factor index
