PROMPT Trained

WHAT IS PROMPT?
PROMPTS for restructuring Oral-Muscular Phonetic Targets” is a tactile/kinesthetic/sensory based approach for reorganizing movement patterns.  the technique uses touch on the muscles of the jaw, lips face and tongue.  All input is done outside of the mouth.  It is equivalent to physical therapy for the mouth because it is based on motor learning theory.  Sounds are taught in interactive communication rather than isolation.   The PROMPT trained Speech Pathologist has received extensive training in four levels of PROMPT so that they have a firm understanding of motor learning principles.  The PROMPT website provides additional information.
