PRT is a naturalistic intervention derived from the principals of ABA. Rather than target individual behaviors one at a time, PRT targets pivotal areas of a child’s development. These areas include motivation, responses to multiple cues, self-management and social initiations. The effectiveness of pivotal response therapies has been proven, but ongoing research of its effects on children with autism is still being conducted.
