Welcome to HALO
Helping Autism through Learning and Outreach
HALO is an organization that provides the services of Soma®RPM (Soma-Rapid Prompting Method), an academic program leading towards communication, the expression of reasoning and understanding, more reliable motor skills, and greater sensory tolerance.
We aim to provide the highest level of service for those diagnosed with autism (verbal and non-verbal), cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and other related disorders.
HALO was established in the year 2002 by Wes and Linda Lange to be a center for RPM, the method Soma Mukhopadhyay created to work with her own son, Tito, who is autistic. Through Soma's efforts, Tito surpassed all expectations to become an accomplished student and the published author of multiple books.
In 2003, Soma was asked to join HALO as a full-time RPM provider at the clinic in Austin, Texas. Her work has focused on teaching students and families, as well as training new RPM providers and practitioners.
HALO is a non-profit organization. Our goal is to impart education using RPM, a trademark of Soma Mukhopadhyay.
