Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT)

Pivotal response treatment (PRT) is a 12-week, evidence-based intervention program that uses applied behaviour analysis (ABA) principles. PRT uses your young child’s (ages 1-4 years) motivation to teach communication and social engagement. You will learn the core strategies of the program so that you can use them in day-to-day routines and interactions with your child.

The program is highly individualized and can target many skills, including eye contact, requesting, turn taking, play skills, and how to gain your child’s attention using a range of strategies.

Schedule

The program consists of 12 weekly one-hour coaching sessions with caregiver and child followed by three monthly booster coaching sessions.    Coaching sessions are offered in person or virtually.

Weekly Coaching Sessions:

May 02 – July 22, 2022 | 1 Day| One hour coaching sessions will be scheduled with families individually. (This program is being offered in person and online)

Individual Booster Sessions: Individual booster sessions will be scheduled with families when the 12 sessions are completed.

Please note that you must have received an invitation letter for Caregiver-Mediated Early Years Services and be registered with the Ontario Autism Program (OAP) to be eligible for this service. Based on OAP guidelines, only one Early Years Caregiver Service is available per 12-month period
