Pivotal Response Treatments for Autism: Communication, Social and Academic Development
This book represents the culmination of ten years of autism research by the authors. It describes Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) and details how this program can help children with autism acquire language skills, form social bonds, and further their schoolwork. PRT is a comprehensive service delivery model that aims to reduce the core symptoms of autism spectrum disorders. The structure of the treatment relies on targeting pivotal areas of behavior to affect a larger, overarching change.
