From Synthesis to Translation: Updating the AFIRM Modules to Reflect Recent Research

The FPG Autism Team, led by Dr. Ann Sam, will develop five new AFIRM modules. These modules will address new evidence-based practices (EBPs) identified by the latest National Clearinghouse on Autism Evidence and Practice review of the literature. The new practices are: Augmentative and Alternative Communication, Behavioral Momentum Intervention, Direct Instruction, Music-Mediated Intervention, and Sensory Integration®. The team will develop the content of the five new modules based upon the format of the current AFIRM modules. The content will be reviewed by an external reviewer. The modules will then be posted on the AFIRM website for free and public access of the materials.
