the attached code closely followed coder tutorial part 2 from the official website. For some reason the code recognizes key presses during the ‘welcome screen’ but it does not register in the next screen. I was not sure why this was occuring. Would very much appreciate your feedback. Thanks

Please may you share the link to which tutorial you are following ? Looking at your code I am unsure which tutorial this is!
It looks like you are entering a stimulus presentation loop where no key presses are yet being watched, so it will feel like nothing is responsive i.e.:
for thisIncrement in staircase: # staircase was initialized before. from it we get element thisIncrement.
# set location of stimuli
targetSide= random.choice([-1,1]) # will be either +1(right) or -1(left)
target.setPos([5*targetSide, 0]) # in other location
# set orientation of probe
foil.setOri(expInfo['refOrientation'] + thisIncrement) #every loop it sets the orientation of the foil image by getting the orientation in expInfo and adding thisIncrement component.
# draw all stimuli
Ok I suspect this might be an indentation thing - the while loop in this section needs to be in the same loop as your stimulus presentation loop - hope that helps!
thats exactly what it was. Thank you so much!
