ASD Supports: Pivotal Response Training (PRT)
▪ What is Pivotal Response Training (PRT)?
– PRT is a naturalistic behavioral intervention developed to facilitate
stimulus and response generalization, increase spontaneity, reduce
prompt dependency, and increase motivation while still relying on the
principles of applied behavior analysis.
– The aim is to optimize the development of certain identified (pivotal)
behaviors such as:
▪ motivation;
▪ self-initiated interactions;
▪ responsiveness to multiple environmental cues; and,
▪ self-regulation of state
– According to Koegel et al. (1999), when these pivotal behaviors are
enhanced, improvement in autonomy, self-learning, and generalization of
new skills follow.
ASD Supports: Pivotal Response Training (PRT)
▪ The primary goals of PRT are to:
1. Facilitate social communication skills
2. Facilitate play and other adaptive
skills
▪
Parent training component increases the
opportunities for consistency, intensity
and sustainability of intervention.
ASD Supports: PRT Possibilities
▪ Presently exploring the possibility of embarking on a 5-step provincial training
opportunity in collaboration with Health. These 5 steps would include:
▪ Level 1: Introduction to PRT
▪ Level 2: Remote training & practical experience (one child across three different activities)
▪ Level 3: Generalization of PRT Motivational Procedures (remote; teach beginning verbal socialcommunication skills with a range of children living with an ASD)
▪ Level 4: Broaden focus of learning to either socialization, self-management, and initiations
(remote) with a range of children living with an ASD
▪ Level 5: Training of Trainers
▪ This would enable each ASD Consultant and 1-2 individuals from each school
division the opportunity to be trainers in PRT.
