PROMPT therapy supports speech and motor-speech control skills without unnecessary or incorrect muscle movements. It increases daily functional communication.
With the PROMPT system, tactile-kinesthetic-proprioceptive input uses touch cues to your jaw, tongue, lips and cheeks. Along with visual and auditory cues, these manually guide you through a targeted word, phrase or sentence.
Who Can Benefit from PROMPT Therapy?
PROMPT therapy can benefit many with communication disorders. The approach is commonly used if you have motor speech disorders, articulation problems or are a non-verbal child. PROMPT therapy helps many with aphasia, apraxia/dyspraxia, dysarthria, pervasive development disorders, cerebral palsy, acquired brain injuries and autism spectrum disorders.
An evaluation by a PROMPT-trained speech-language pathologist is the only way to find out if you are right for this therapy.
