Response Interruption and Redirection (RIR)
Response interruption and redirection can be used to eliminate or reduce interfering behaviors.
What Will I Learn?
The AFIRM model guides the learner through four lessons to facilitate:
- Learning basic knowledge about response interruption and redirection (RIR).
- Applying RIR in activity based scenarios that promote real-world application.
The RIR 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 RIR||10 minutes|
|Lesson 1: Basics of RIR||20 minutes|
|Lesson 2: Planning for RIR||25 minutes|
|Lesson 3: Using RIR||45 minutes|
|Lesson 4: Monitoring RIR||25 minutes|
|Applying RIR||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.
