What is PROMPT?
PROMPT, an acronym for PROMPTS for
Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets, is a multidimensional
approach to speech production disorders has come to embrace not only the
well-known physical-sensory aspects of motor performance, but also its
cognitive-linguistic and social-emotional aspects. PROMPT is about integrating
all domains and systems towards positive communication outcome. It may be used
(with varying intensity and focus) with all speech production disorders from
approximately 6 months of age onward. To achieve the best outcome with PROMPT
it should not be thought of or used mainly to facilitate oral-motor skills,
produce individual sounds/phonemes or as an articulation program but rather as
a program to develop motor skill in the development of language for
Why do you need to use PROMPT?
Almost every clinician will have a caseload that will
include a child or adult with a speech production disorder. The delays or
disorders may range from stuttering, language formulation, syntax, motor
control or planning, phonological or "rule based" learning disorders,
auditory processing and production disorders, general cognitive or global
delays. Whatever the reason, PROMPT may be used to facilitate production,
revise or change production or to integrate motor production with
cognitive-linguistic function. PROMPT training will also give each clinician a
more organized way to assess all domains and organize this information for the
most effective, functional treatment program.
Introduction to PROMPT:
This 3 day intensive workshop focuses on teaching the
technique of PROMPT. The training is hands-on tactile-kinesthetic input and
emphasizes the need to integrate this into a holistic therapy approach. Please
note that due to the hands-on training workshop attendees cannot have long
fingernails when taking the workshop. Should you have any limitations in using
your hands to apply PROMPTs to a training partner, or receiving PROMPTs on your
face from a training partner, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for
The workshop runs from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM
At the conclusion of the Introduction to PROMPT: Technique workshop,
participants will be able to:
-Describe the philosophy of PROMPT and it's application principles.
-Apply different levels of PROMPTing (Parameter, Syllable, Complex, Surface) as
appropriate to the selected cases.
-Analyze speech motor subsystems using the Systems Analysis Observation and
Motor Speech Hierarchy.
-Design interactive therapy activities that utilize all of the above
