Bridging PROMPT Technique to Intervention
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 interaction.
This 3 day course teaches clinicians more about the technique of PROMPT and focuses on setting appropriate goals and objectives for the individual within the PROMPT framework. This training assists clinicians in incorporating PROMPT therapy across a range of settings, including the home environment, while maintaining a focus on the key needs for the individual to assist them to develop to their potential.
