Peer-mediated Instruction and Intervention Module (AFIRM)


With a foundation in behaviorism and social learning theory, Peer-Mediated Instruction and Intervention (PMII) involves systematically teaching peers without disabilities ways of engaging learners with ASD in positive and meaningful social interactions.

The AFIRM model guides the learner through four lessons to facilitate:

  • Learning basic knowledge about peer-mediated instruction and intervention (PMII).
  • Applying PMII in activity based scenarios that promote real-world application.

The PMII module will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours to complete. However, the module is broken into individual lessons to help guide your learning.
