The Assessment of Functional Living Skills is a practical teaching companion that contains task analyses, teaching suggestions, and prompting strategies. At the end of the day, the goal is to create a pathway to independence for those on the autism spectrum by generating successful programs. Educators, professionals, and caregivers have found that the AFLS can help to provide positive results quickly and easily.
That’s why in today’s post we’d like to share a bit about what others are saying about the AFLS. These success stories are a great way to see how the programs actually work. Easy to utilize any time and anywhere, this simple-to-understand approach is getting positive feedback. Let’s take a look at what people have to say.
What Are People Saying About Functional Living Skills?
“The AFLS has been a huge asset to the assessment and intake process for our clients. …The programming and grid system allows parents and teachers to see the individual’s current skill level and progress and allows us as clinicians to choose the next targets with ease.”
—Nissa, BCBA CA
At Functional Living Skills, our goal is always first and foremost to foster a pathway to independence. When learners gain the skills they need for independence in everyday life, independent outcomes are achieved. We believe that AFLS is the most versatile system for assessing the needs of a learner and then creating a pathway to daily living. We’re always thrilled to hear about experiences like Nissa’s, and that’s why we’ve created protocols for basic living skills, home skills, community participation skills, school skills, vocational skills, and independent living skills.
