The Assessment of Functional Living Skills consists of:
... The AFLS Guide--A teaching companion that contains task analyses, teaching suggestions, and prompting strategies, and
... Six individually available assessment protocols including Basic Living Skills, Home Skills, Community Participation Skills, School Skills, Independent Living Skills and Vocational Skills.
The AFLS comprises the Guide and protocols that assess functional, practical, and essential skills of everyday life. Each assessment protocol can be used as a standalone assessment, but the protocols are conceptualized as distinct parts of an extended assessment spanning a continuum throughout a learner's life in home, school, and community settings. Each module is distinct, but is connected by unifying themes and overarching goals for maximizing a learner's freedom, independence, and opportunities. Bundle multiple modules and customize the perfect assessment for your setting and situation. Modules are sold separately, and different economical bundles are available.
This is the Basic Skills Module.
Basic self-help, self-care, self-management, hygiene, routines, and core communication skills are assessed in this protocol. The skills assessed in The Basic Living Skills Assessment Protocol should be thought of as a prerequisite for any functional skills program for any learner regardless of age, setting, or disability. These essential skills, if not mastered, will have a profound impact on a learner's ability to live independently, to be successful in school, and to take advantage of various social and recreational activities throughout the learner's life. The Basic Living Skills Protocol includes:
... Self Management
... Basic Communication
... Health, Safety and First Aid
... Nighttime Routines
"The AFLS is a critical tool for clearly defining targets dealing with functional living skills! This tool has been sorely needed for meeting the needs of many children, adolescents and adults. A must have for meeting the needs of our low-incidence population! A very needed tool!"--Dustin from Colorado.
"I was just introduced to the AFLS books. I have to tell you I am so thankful, they are wonderful. It made me see how many things I still do for my son with autism and didn't even realize. These would have been great for my typical daughter too as she is married now and still calls me to say, "How do you tell if meat is spoiled?" and many other questions that are in your books. I've always loved the ABLLS-R and now the AFLS really helps me look at my son's total picture. Thanks...!"--Susan from Florida
