Peer-mediated Instruction and Intervention (PMII)
With a foundation in behaviorism and social learning theory,1 PMII involves systematically teaching peers without disabilities ways of engaging learners with ASD in positive and meaningful social interactions.2-4
What Will I Learn?
The AFIRM model guides the learner through four lessons to facilitate:
- Learning basic knowledge about peer-mediated instruction and intervention (PMII).
- Applying PMII in activity based scenarios that promote real-world application.
The PMII 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 PMII||10 minutes|
|Lesson 1: Basics of PMII||20 minutes|
|Lesson 2: Planning for PMII||25 minutes|
|Lesson 3: Using PMII||25 minutes|
|Lesson 4: Monitoring PMII||25 minutes|
|Applying PMII||10 minutes|
If you leave the module prior to finishing, your place within the module will be saved. From your My Account page, look in the My Modules tab and select the last page viewed to resume this module.
