By using modeling (MD), the learner with ASD can acquire and generalize new skills/behaviors.
What Will I Learn?
The AFIRM model guides the learner through four lessons to facilitate:
- Learning basic knowledge about modeling (MD).
- Applying MD in activity based scenarios that promote real-world application.
The MD module will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours to complete. However, the module is broken into individual lessons to help guide your learning:
