Our distinctive HALO program (or Helping Autism through Learning and Outreach) is designed to support the learning needs of students with autism and communication challenges. Students selected for in the program participate in RPM sessions in-class and individually every week.
The HALO program or Rapid Prompting Method was developed by Soma Mukhopadhyay. It is well suited to students with low communication skills or are non-verbal. Success comes with practice and utilising the steps of communication where the teacher uses letter-boards, stencils, paper choices or whichever strategies work for that student. Each student has their own learning styles and RPM identifies them in order to tap into their key to learning and engagement.
