Adapted responsive teaching (ART) is a 6-month relationship-focused, home based intervention aimed at improving parental responsiveness and child developmental outcomes that is based on the responsive teaching curriculum.
ART uses modelling and coaching to encourage parents to use responsive strategies during daily routines with their children, which are designed to target 'pivotal' behaviors (e.g., social play, joint attention, arousal and attention, engagement, adaptability, and coping).
