Mission Cognition’s Relationship Focused, Neurodiversity Affirming, Evidence-Based Approach to play and social behavior assessment and intervention is based on a model of social domains (global focus areas: GFAs). The vague, complex, and abstract label of “social skills” has been broken down into 15 global focus areas to support you in more comprehensively assessing social behaviors, identifying areas of strength and need, and developing an individualized learner support plan.
To most effectively and efficiently guide your resource selections from the social domain core activity menu below, completion of the Social Interaction-Global Focus Area (SI-GFA) Assessment tool, is recommended. The tool identifies 3-5 priority global focus areas to target for each learner. Skills in these areas have been identified through assessment as developmentally appropriate, functional, meaningful, and relevant to the learner as an individual. Being equipped with this information allows you to select resources aligned with the facilitation of target skills within each priority area.
Each global focus area is aligned with a set of GFA Core Activities, which have been specifically created to facilitate the development of target skills which have been identified as functional, meaningful and relevant. Browse and download the core activities here for immediate use with your learners.
