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|
