PRT Online Parent Workshop
Derived from Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) techniques, PRT is a play-based method that targets improving pivotal development areas for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). PRT allows learners to improve specific domains such as communication, socialization, and behavior through research-based motivational procedures. PRT also empowers family members to implement effective interventions in the natural environment and daily routines.
PRT is empirically supported and recognized by the National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorder and the National Autism Center’s National Standards Project .
The PRT Online Parent Training Workshop was created to provide training to parents of individuals with ASD interested in applying PRT in their daily interactions. Workshop attendees will learn to 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, including Autism Intervention Clinic Director, Dr. Grace Gengoux; Autism Center Director, Dr. Antonio Hardan; and Drs. Robert and Lynn Koegel, co-creators of PRT.
