Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) Online Course

The Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) Online Course was created to provide training to parents of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) interested in applying PRT in their daily interactions. Course participants will learn how to help children with ASD improve verbal communication, social initiations, and other pivotal social communication skills by utilizing PRT in their own environments.  

Registered participants may view the training materials and lectures at their own pace, through recorded audio-visual aids that cover each topic in a remote teaching format. This course is currently taught by Stanford University School of Medicine faculty and staff.
