Prompt Therapy

PROMPT is an acronym for Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets. The therapist uses touch and movement cues on the jaw, tongue, and lips to manually guide them through a targeted word, phrase or sentence.  PROMPT is like physical therapy for the mouth. It works because the child is actually able to feel the difference, making it easier for them to correct their movements.

PROMPT therapy is appropriate for a wide range of patients with speech sound disorders and those who need support learning how to produce sounds and words. We see issues like apraxia, autism, articulation problems most often in pre-verbal and non-speaking children.

PROMPT can benefit these diagnoses:

Childhood Apraxia of Speech/ Motor Planning Difficulties

Dysarthria/ Muscle Weakness

Speech Sound Disorders

Cleft Palate or Craniofacial Anomalies

Developmental Delays

Neurological Conditions
