Visual Supports (VS)
By using visual supports (VS), the learner with ASD might be able to process information easier and more quickly.
What Will I Learn?
The AFIRM model guides the learner through four lessons to facilitate:
- Learning basic knowledge about visual supports (VS).
- Applying VS in activity based scenarios that promote real-world application.
The VS 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 VS||10 minutes|
|Lesson 1: Basics of VS||20 minutes|
|Lesson 2: Planning for VS||25 minutes|
|Lesson 3: Using VS||25 minutes|
|Lesson 4: Monitoring VS||25 minutes|
|Applying VS||10 minutes|
