Pivotal Response Treatment and Autism Ranking: Strong positive evidence

History

Pivotal response treatment was developed by a number of psychologists in the US in the 1990s, including Dr. Robert Koegel and Dr. Lynn Koegel at the University of California at Santa Barbara.

They developed pivotal response treatment as a more naturalistic, alternative to traditional behavioural techniques, such as discrete trial training.

Pivotal response treatment has since been incorporated into several multi-component programmes (such as the Early Start Denver Model and the Nova Scotia early intensive behaviour intervention).
