(Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets) 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.
does PROMPT work?
word is made up of individual sounds or phonemes. Each sound requires
different muscle contractions, retractions placement and movement
of the jaw, lips, tongue, neck and chest to produce the sound. The
therapist at Achieve Hearing & Rehabilitation will work with
your child to “teach” their muscles to produce a phoneme
correctly by stimulating the muscles through touch.
is PROMPT different from traditional articulation therapy?
articulation therapy relies on a person’s ability to make
sounds based on what he/she hears or sees. PROMPT focuses on teaching
the movements for sounds with touch cues.
Does my child need PROMPT?
evaluation will determine if your child will benefit from PROMPT.
The most common patients who benefit from PROMPT have motor speech
disorders, articulation problems or are non-verbal.
