The treatments take place at the Or Akiva center, with the cooperation of the parents. The duration of each treatment is about 45 minutes.
Starting in 2021, treatments will also be held in Be'er Sheva and the surrounding area in order to allow the children of the south access to PRT treatments as well.
The six components of the therapeutic procedure:

A. A conversation with the parents

The purpose of the conversation is to get to know the needs of the child and the family. 

Transferring important initial information such as the setting in which the child studies, treatments he receives, family constraints, etc.
This information is essential for building the initial personal plan.
At the same time, also checking the child's developmental status, his communicative, verbal/non-verbal ability, ability to play, imitation, independence, etc.

Before the treatment, essential questions are required such as: the child's preferred sources of motivation, which can be incorporated during the treatment: games, activities, foods.

B. Developmental assessment

The first meetings will be used by the therapist to get an impression of the child's developmental abilities, and to create a connection.

The assessment is done by playing and favorite activities of the child and refers to the stages of his development:
Verbal/non-verbal communication, joint attention, imitation, cognition, social skills, play, independence (in eating, dressing, hygiene, chores), gross and fine motor skills. 

C. Building a personal treatment plan

The program is built according to the developmental level of the child in cooperation with the parents.
The plan concerns all stages of development, as tested in the stages of the initial assessment.
The stated goals are measurable, that is, when an assessment is performed, it is possible to know objectively whether the child has achieved the goal.

D. Treatments

The treatments carried out after the construction of the personal treatment plan are carried out in accordance with the plan and in order to achieve the goals, as defined. 
The treatment is done by playing and favorite activities of the child. 
At the end of each treatment, the parents receive instructions to continue practicing with their child in the home routine during the week.
E. Re-evaluating and renewing the plan

The program is dynamic and flexible. 
Once per period of time the therapist will evaluate the goals and examine them. 

If there are goals that have been achieved, they are replaced by other, more advanced ones, and if the goals are not achieved, rethinking, brainstorming is done, and if necessary, an alternative therapeutic strategy will be formulated.

F. Continuous contact with parents
The parents receive full accompaniment, and there is an open line between the therapist and the parents. 
Parents are invited to consult and ask questions in any field related to the advancement of the child.
