AFLS: School Skills Assessment Protocol
It is important for a learner to be an active participant in a variety of skills, routines, and social situations in educational settings. These skills are essential in striving for independence and successful functioning in different types of classrooms, in all parts of the school campus, and with peers and various staff. This assessment covers all age levels of education (i.e., elementary school, middle school, high school, college). It also incorporates skills that are necessary in a wide range of classroom environments (i.e., special day classes, “pull out” classrooms, inclusion, regular education), and considers the individual’s level of development (e.g., language, behavior, and cognitive abilities).
The AFLS: School Skills Assessment Protocol includes:
- Classroom Mechanics
- Routines and Expectations
- Meals at School
- Social Skills
- Common Knowledge
- Core Academics
- Applied Academics
About The AFLS …
The AFLS is comprised of The AFLS Guide and four unique assessment protocols that assess functional, practical, and essential skills of everyday life. Although each assessment protocol can be used as a standalone assessment, we conceptualize all protocols as being different modules of an extended assessment that exists on a continuum spanning throughout a learner’s life in home, school, and community settings. Each module is different yet each 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.
