INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN PROCESS

DAI Instructional Design Process

 

This assessment is based on various developmental tools typically used to determine approximations of intelligence levels in people with developmental disabilities. This assessment is not intended to produce as estimation of intelligence, but instead should be used to by a collaborative team to set instructional priorities and for designing instructional goals.

This assessment requires those who are most familiar with the student/ individual with a developmental disability, to make an estimation of the extent to which that person can perform various functional skills independently.
