Pivotal Response Treatment?

Pivotal Response Treatment?

Has anyone heard of pivotal response treatment? If so have you done it? Did you feel it works better than ABA? I'm trying to determine the best treatment for my 3.5 yr old son who has HFA and hyperlexia. Thanks

Pivotal Response Training

Pivotal Response Training

My son is 2.5yrs with ASD, and has been getting abt 10-15hrs of ABA for 6months. He has made incredible improvements- uses words when prompted and more interested in others. My question is for those with experience with PRT. I heard from another mother that PRT was more effective for her son. Anyone else with personal experience of this?

It was only used a little as a part of a program for our son. The therapist used motivating activities such as teaching imitation through toys that he liked, so that learning would be naturally… read more

PRT (Pivotal Response Treatment) Vs ABA

PRT (Pivotal Response Treatment) Vs ABA

We just got our insurance approved for 20 hrs/ week of ABA at home or in an unrestrictive environment. Also he is taking about 10 hours/week of ABA at school. Stanford University is doing a research study based on PRT in which they said they would give 10 hours of PRT for 12 weeks and 5 hours of PRT for another 12 weeks total of 24 weeks. Also Parent training of about 1 hour a week. We might qualify for it.

But the problem is we can't take more than 10 hours of ABA if we need to participate… read more

Bored And Angry Behavior

Bored And Angry Behavior

I am in need of advice, my daughter has been in ABA theraphy for the past year. She is very bored and does not want to play with the therapist toys and keeps signing all done. She even lost interest in her own toys and activities that she use to enjoy. I don't understand what's happening. We try new things, but I am running out of ideas and it's getting a bit ridiculous having to have new toys brought out at her theraphy sessions. Has anyone's child done this similar behavior and did anything… read more

Experience Of ABA Therapist

Experience Of ABA Therapist

We are starting ABA therapy for our 2 years old son. I was told the
therapist (behavior interventionist) has only 6 months of related experience. We don't feel very comfortable with that. The provider told me it is common in the industry to have inexperienced staffs delivering ABA therapy. Is that true? We are in San Diego, CA. Should we switch provider?

The risk of switching provider is that we don't know how much time the whole process is going to take and it will delay treatment.

Thanks in… read more

Home Based ABA Vs Classroom

Home Based ABA Vs Classroom

Does anyone have an opinion on which one is better? I am exploring this for my 2 and half year old daughter.

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

We do a mix of home, center, and community outings sessions. I agree with the PP who talked about the importance of generalization.
