The Rapid Prompting Method (RPM) is used to teach academics and communication skills to students with autism by eliciting responses through intensive verbal, auditory, visual and tactile prompts that are shaped and faded as skills progress. Prompting is designed to keep students focused and successful.
Developed by Soma Mukhopadhyay, this approach presumes competence and is very low tech requiring stencils, paper and pencil. Student responses start with choosing written answers and progresses to pointing, to writing, and to typing which reveals students’ comprehension, academic skills and eventually, conversation. Erika Anderson from Ace Teaching and Consulting, LLC will be conducting sessions with 7 students over three days.
This is an observation only workshop and student sessions are currently filled. Observation will be through a live video feed from on-site 1:1 instructional sessions. Observation allows the learner to get an idea of what RPM is and how to effectively implement this approach that has been shown to be successful with ASD students who have complex learning needs. In addition, Erika will be available for a 15 min Q&A scheduled between every few sessions throughout each day.
Saturday, October 22nd: 9:00-5:30
