Prompting is an effective practice to increase success and generalizability of target skills or behaviors for learners with ASD.
What Will I Learn?
The AFIRM model guides the learner through four lessons to facilitate:
- Learning basic knowledge about prompting (PP).
- Applying PP in activity based scenarios that promote real-world application.
The PP module will take approximately 2.5 to 3 hours to complete. However, the module is broken into individual lessons to help guide your learning:
|Lesson||Time to Complete|
|A Case for PP||10 minutes|
|Lesson 1: Basics of PP||25 minutes|
|Lesson 2: Planning for PP||40 minutes|
|Lesson 3: Using PP||40 minutes|
|Lesson 4: Monitoring PP||30 minutes|
|Applying PP||10 minutes|
