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:
|Lesson||Time to Complete|
|A Case for MD||10 minutes|
|Lesson 1: Basics of MD||20 minutes|
|Lesson 2: Planning for MD||25 minutes|
|Lesson 3: Using MD||25 minutes|
|Lesson 4: Monitoring MD||25 minutes|
|Applying MD||10 minutes|
