Pivotal Response Training (PRT)

What exactly is a pivotal behavior? Well, in this training, you will learn that when a client learns a pivotal behavior, this will help him/her to learn and generalize many other skills that were never taught. Pivotal behaviors include: motivation, self-initiations, responding to multiple cues, and self-management. This training explains how to use PRT procedures to teach a variety of skills to young children through elementary aged children.
