RAPID Skills Training | RST
Listen to an interview about RST on the @behavioralobservations podcast with Matt Cicoria!
A natural-environment approach for parents, teachers and direct support staff:
This approach is an interactive, caretaker training package designed from evidence-based models including Behavior Skills Training (BST), Shaping, Differential Reinforcement (DR), Non-Contingent Reinforcement (NCR), Direct Instruction (DI), Precision Teaching (PT), Precursor Intervention, Extinction and Parent Management Training.
What is RAPID Skills Training?
Ultimately, RST provides you with much-needed relief.
You’ll learn how to better prevent difficult to manage behavior, keeping your loved one in a position to learn how to adapt to the world around them and live happily. Based on our professional experience over the last two decades, when RST is interwoven into individualized behavior analysis & therapy services, results can be astounding. It’s well known and documented in respected journals and through peer review… when the family and natural supports are included in the treatment process, the overall results are just simply much, much better…
*** We do not recommend implementing this RST program or any behavior program without professional consultation from a qualified licensed behavior health professional. The RAPID Skills Training (RST) exercise guides are located in the links above and, require coaching, feedback, practice and oversight from a qualified behavioral health professional.
Who Benefits from RAPID Skills Training?
RAPID skills are critical interaction skills that every caretaker must master. Initially frequent daily practice is combined with professional coaching from a qualified professional. In order to create meaningful daily interactions, these critical skills must be learned… before any advanced behavioral programming is considered.
