 MODULE: Pivotal Response Training (PRT)


PRT strategies have strong empirical support for use in facilitating communication and social skills with continued research of its impact in school programs (Harrower & Dunlap, 2001; King-Sears & Cummings, 1996). With the significant acceleration of the rate of diagnosis of ASD in children and youth, school districts and other service providers are increasingly challenged to provide interventions to learners with ASD that are both effective and efficient. Utilizing the techniques in this module in close collaboration with learners’ parents and other team members will contribute to successful implementation of this intervention in different settings.
