What is PROMPT Therapy?
PROMPT is an acronym for Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets. The technique is a tactile-kinesthetic approach that uses touch cues to a patient’s articulators (jaw, tongue, lips) to manually guide them through a targeted word, phrase or sentence. The technique develops motor control and the development of proper oral muscular movements, while eliminating unnecessary muscle movements, such as jaw sliding and inadequate lip rounding.
One-to-one sessions provide individual attention in a nurturing, sensory-based, therapeutic setting. Multiple techniques are used to meet each child's needs, and treatment plans are individualized and unique.
Social Group Sessions
Small group sessions encourage articulation carryover and language skill development that allow children to mimic natural social interactions.These groups allow children to utilize core skills in a socially motivating way.
Virtual therapy is offered to provide speech and language therapy during this time of social distancing.
