Visual Supports (VS)
By using visual supports (VS), the learner with ASD might be able to process information easier and more quickly.
What Will I Learn?
The AFIRM model guides the learner through four lessons to facilitate:
- Learning basic knowledge about visual supports (VS).
- Applying VS in activity based scenarios that promote real-world application.
