ON-SITE PRT PROFESSIONAL TRAINING WORKSHOPS

We currently offer on-site professional development workshops for groups across the United States and internationally who are interested in receiving training in Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT)®. These workshops are lecture style trainings with a focus on video examples to demonstrate the application of each PRT® procedure. Case vignettes, group practice, and other hands-on exercises are also incorporated. A question and answer period is included, and allows for participants to engage in a dialogue with trainers and receive individualized support.

Our Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT)® trainings provides a strong a strong knowledge base of PRT® research and methodology. Content typically covered includes; Characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), History and Development of PRT®, PRT® service delivery model, delineation of pivotal areas and the corresponding interventions (i.e., motivation, responding to multiple cues, self-initiations, and self-management), motivational procedures of PRT® for teaching social-communication (including child attention and clear instructions, maintenance tasks, child choice, contingent reinforcement, reinforcement of communicative attempts, direct and natural reinforcement, types of opportunities for evoking language, creating learning opportunities in the natural environment), facilitating social interactions with typically developing peers, self-management, Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA), and motivational academics. Trainings can be tailored to the specific needs of each agency or school.

Professionals also have the opportunity to become certified in PRT at Level I, II, III, IV and V through on-site workshops. Please read below for more detailed information on our programs.
