RAPID PROMPTING METHOD (RPM)
  • Based on the program developed by Soma Mukhopadhyay, RPM stands for Rapid Prompting Method. A description of RPM here is taken from the Halo-Soma website (http://www.halo-soma.org/). "RPM is used to teach academics, and communication is also taught in the process. Despite behaviors, the academic focus of every RPM lesson is designed to activate the reasoning part of the brain so that the student becomes distracted by and engaged in learning. RPM is distinct from other methods as it is based upon how the brain works. The aim is to bring the student to maximum learning through the open learning channel and to elicit the best (not simply to test) out of the child to enable maximum output in that given time. As a student's cognitive and motor proficiency increases, the sophistication of a student's response also improves." Call us for more detailed information at 703-466-5533
