PROMPT stands for “Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets.” It is a tactile technique that can be used for the treatment of speech production disorders. PROMPT provides visual, auditory, tactile, kinesthetic and proprioceptive cues to the speech system. PROMPT is a treatment method based on extensive research in the areas of motor learning, cognition and social development.
To enhance overall functional communication.
PROMPT therapy is used to help patients produce certain phonemes. A phoneme is the smallest unit of sound in speech. For example, the “c” sound in the word cat is one phoneme, the “a” is another and the “t” is another. Each phoneme requires different muscle contractions or retractions and placement or movement of the jaw, lips, tongue, neck and chest to be produced.
PROMPT provides touch, pressure, kinesthetic and proprioceptive cues to oral musculature. The therapist uses their hands to cue and stimulate articulatory movement, by externally manipulating the muscles of the face, the mylohyoid muscle under the chin, and structures that are associated with voicing.
