25 hour week-long intensive program

We are currently scheduling for the week long 25 hour intensive program for families in geographcially distant areas.

In the week-long program, families and their child attend 5 hours of PRT parent education each day at our center and in the community. During this time, one of our staff is assigned to the family for the entire week and focuses on helping the parents learn how to effectively use the PRT procedures to improve their child's communication skills. In this program the family receives a total of 25 direct hours of training with their child, and feedback following the program is provided.
