Unleashing Potential through Pivotal Responses

Welcome to our Training for Pivotal Responses (PRT) program, a transformative approach to fostering essential skills in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). At Umang Institute, we recognize the significance of pivotal behaviors that serve as catalysts for broader skill development, and our specialized PRT training aims to unlock the potential for growth and progress in each child.

Understanding Training for Pivotal Responses (PRT):

Training for Pivotal Responses is a pivotal part of our Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services, focusing on enhancing pivotal skills that act as building blocks for other vital behaviors. PRT is designed to stimulate motivation, social initiations, and language in children with ASD.

The Power of Pivotal Responses:

Pivotal Responses are behaviors that significantly impact a child’s overall development and pave the way for improved communication, social interaction, and adaptive functioning. Our program emphasizes targeting these pivotal behaviors to facilitate broader skill acquisition.

Our PRT Approach:

At Umang Institute, we adopt a play-based and naturalistic approach to PRT, creating a fun and engaging learning environment for children. Our skilled therapists tailor interventions to each child’s unique interests and strengths, promoting a love for learning and exploration.

Key Elements of the Program:

  1. Motivation Enhancement: Identifying and harnessing individual motivations to increase engagement and learning opportunities.
  2. Social Initiations: Cultivating social initiations to promote positive interactions and enhance communication skills.
  3. Language Development: Encouraging language acquisition through playful interactions and functional communication.
  4. Child-Led Learning: Fostering child-led activities to stimulate creativity, problem-solving, and self-discovery.
  5. Natural Environment Teaching: Integrating PRT principles into natural settings to enhance generalization of skills.
  6. Family Collaboration: Collaborating closely with families to reinforce pivotal behaviors in daily routines.
