Paperback / 224 Pages + DVD
This practical manual and accompanying DVD-ROM present a research-supported behavioral intervention for children with autism that teachers can easily integrate into their existing classroom curriculum. Classroom Pivotal Response Teaching (CPRT) enhances children's motivation and participation in learning; increases the number of learning opportunities they experience each day; and promotes mastery of targeted communication, play, social, and academic skills. In a convenient large-size format with lay-flat binding, the book features more than two dozen reproducible worksheets and forms to aid in planning and implementing the procedures. The DVD-ROM includes narrated PowerPoint presentations with invaluable video examples of CPRT in action, along with copies of the reproducibles.
