Description: Recognized as one of the top state-of-the-art treatments for autism in the United States , the innovative Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) uses natural learning opportunities to target and modify key behaviors in children with autism, leading to widespread positive effects on communication, behavior, and social skills. The product of 20 years of research from Robert and Lynn Koegel co-founders of the renowned Autism Research Center at the University of California, Santa Barbara this proven approach is now clearly presented in one accessible book. Because PRT works with each child's natural motivations and stresses functional communication over rote learning, this comprehensive model helps children develop skills they can really use. With this timely resource, educators and therapists will keep parents involved in every aspect of behavioral intervention. National Research Council of the National Academy of Science, 2001.
