Using the AFLS, you can help individuals with autism or developmental delays become more independent at home, at school, at work, or in the community. Composed of a Guide and six Assessment Protocols, the AFLS is an evaluation tool, skill-tracking system, and instructional blueprint, complete with task analyses and teaching suggestions. This remarkable system assesses 1,900 functional skills in the following areas:

  • Basic Living Skills
  • Home Skills
  • Community Participation
  • School Skills
  • Vocational Skills
  • Independent Living Skills

You can use any or all of the six Assessment Protocols to help individuals become more independent or transition into a new environment. For example, AFLS evaluation and task analyses can help prepare a child with autism to enter the school system or assist a young adult in acquiring the functional skills needed to hold down a job.
