This chapter describes and illustrates Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) with people who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD). We review the essential components of PRT, based on early research within applied behaviour analysis and more recent extensions and applications to educational and community settings. The chapter details many PRT studies and the implications for future practice.
