What is PROMPT?

PROMPT is an acronym for PROMPTS for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets. It is a multimodal approach to treating speech sound disorders that goes beyond speech production alone, as it is understood that a child’s ability to communicate successfully results from an interaction of a social emotional ability to connect with others, a cognitive linguistic understanding of language, and a physical sensory ability to produce certain sounds.

A PROMPT trained therapist uses their hands to teach a child how to move their jaw, lips, and tongue for effective speech production. Children will learn words that are relevant and motivating to them in their everyday environments with their everyday communication partners.

How does it work?

Your PROMPT trained speech language pathologist will assess your child’s communication in various domains, including social emotional, cognitive linguistic, and physical sensory. Information from the assessment will be organized to create an effective and functional treatment program. During ongoing treatment sessions, your child will participate in motivating activities that encourage several repetitions of functional target words, while the SLP uses their hands to support your child’s motor movements as they produce words. 

Who would benefit from PROMPT? 

A child who has communication challenges due to speech production disorders from approximately 6 months of age onward.
