Now Certified in Rapid Prompting Method (RPM)
I am delighted to say that recently became certified in Rapid Prompting Method (RPM). RPM is a means for improving academic success and communication for persons with autism and similar disorders. RPM uses prompting to initiate a student’s independent response, without physical support. In addition to teaching letter-chart pointing, RPM also utilizes stencils and other drawing exercises to lead to independent handwriting*.
I have found it to be an extremely effective method for some of my patients in the Northern Virginia area. Rapid Prompting Method is used to teach academics, and communication is also taught in the process. Despite behaviors, the academic focus of every RPM lesson is designed to activate the reasoning part of the brain so that the student becomes distracted by and engaged in learning. Contact me if you are interested in learning more. I would be happy to discuss whether or not Rapid Prompting Method is right for your child.
