The Prompt Method

Would your child benefit from the PROMPT method of treatment?

  1. PROMPT was developed to treat children with motor speech disorders including apraxia and can be used for children ages 6 months and older. 
  2. PROMPT stands for Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Target.
  3. PROMPT 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.” 
  4. Therapists start by helping the child produce phonemes, the smallest unit of sound that distinguishes one word from another, and then progress from there. 
  5. If you are concerned about your child having a motor speech disorder, we would be more than happy to help. Please call us for a phone consultation: 312.780.0820
