Parent Implemented Interventions (PII)
Parent implemented interventions (PII) consist of practitioners collaborating with, training, and coaching parents to implement evidence-based practices (EBPs) with their children throughout daily routines and activities.
What Will I Learn?
The AFIRM model guides the learner through four lessons to facilitate:
- Learning basic knowledge about parent implemented interventions (PII).
- Applying PII in activity based scenarios that promote real-world application.
The PII 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 PII||10 minutes|
|Lesson 1: Basics of PII||20 minutes|
|Lesson 2: Planning for PII||25 minutes|
|Lesson 3: Using PII||45 minutes|
|Lesson 4: Monitoring PII||25 minutes|
|Applying PII||10 minutes|
