An assessment, skills tracking system, and curriculum guide for skills that are essential for independence.
The Assessment of Functional Living Skills program comprises
... The AFLS Guide--A teaching companion that contains task analyses, teaching suggestions, and prompting strategies, and
... Six individually available assessment protocols including Basic Living Skills, Home Skills and Community Participation Skills, School Skills, Independent Living Skills and Vocational Skills.
The Assessment of Functional Living Skills (AFLS) has the ease, look, and familiarity of the ABLLS-R extended to necessary skills of independence in home, school, and community settings.
In conjunction with the Guide, the Protocols assess skills in different functional areas of everyday life. Each protocol can be used as a standalone assessment, but the protocols are conceptualized as distinct parts of an extended assessment spanning a continuum throughout a learner's life in home, school, and community settings. Each module is distinct, but is connected by unifying themes and overarching goals for maximizing a learner's freedom, independence, and opportunities. Individual modules are available separately and other economical bundles are available.
THIS ITEM is the Vocational Skills Protocol., which provides caregivers and professionals with information to teach essential skills to learners preparing to enter the workforce or those who are already working but want to further develop skills for a wide variety of settings. The criterion-referenced assessment covers skills related to obtaining employment, searching for job openings, creating resumes, completing applications, and preparing for interviews. It includes a wide range of basic work-related skills such as job safety, payroll, financial issues, and interacting with supervisors and co-workers--and a review of skills required in specific types of jobs in a variety of settings. The assessment evaluates vocational skills for individuals with various types and levels of disability. The Vocational Skills Protocol includes:
... Job Search.
... Basic Skills.
... Coworker Relations.
... Workplace Safety.
... Fixed Activity Skills.
... Custodial & Cleaning.
... Support Personnel.
... Office Skills.
... Computer Skills.
... Restaurant Skills.

"The AFLS is a critical tool for clearly defining targets dealing with functional living skills! This tool has been sorely needed for meeting the needs of many children, adolescents and adults. A must have for meeting the needs of our low-incidence population! A very needed tool!"--Dustin from Colorado.
"I was just introduced to the AFLS books. I have to tell you I am so thankful, they are wonderful. It made me see how many things I still do for my son with autism and didn't even realize. These would have been great for my typical daughter too as she is married now and still calls me to say, "How do you tell if meat is spoiled?" and many other questions that are in your books. I've always loved the ABLLS-R and now the AFLS really helps me look at my son's total picture. Thanks...!"--Susan from Florida
