RAPID PROMPTING METHOD

 RPM is a parent-developed communicative and educational therapy for persons with autism who do not speak or who have difficulty using speech communicatively. The technique aims to develop a means of interactive learning by pointing amongst multiple-choice options presented at different locations in space, with the aid of sensory “prompts” which evoke a response without cueing any specific response option. RPM exploits and develops a rhythmic mode of responding in which the disconnection amongst cognitive goal, affective motive, motor plan, and action becomes less significant because the motor action already is programmed as part of an ongoing rhythm of movements. Education is imperative and has been denied to the Autism community for far too long. Soma Mukhopadyay’s “Rapid Prompting Method”is a key that has “unlocked” the potential for hundreds of individuals and offers a new way of teaching academics particularly for non verbal children with autism
