Introduction to PROMPT: Technique

5/2/2013 - 5/4/2013

Introduction to PROMPT: Technique

May 2 - 4, 2013

This workshop focuses on technique and learning the four levels (Parameter, Syllable, Complex and Surface) of prompting that support the broader, holistic philosophy and approach of PROMPT.


The long view and vision of Deborah Hayden, the creator and founder of PROMPT, has always been to have PROMPT readily available to every person, in every country who can receive benefit from it. For this reason it was felt that no one person should own PROMPT but that it should be in the public domain where its theory and treatment could be studied and its services made universal. It from this perspective that in 2001 PROMPT became a not for profit organization.

The PROMPT Institute Mission

· The PROMPT Institute is dedicated to the investigation of tactual sensory systems and their critical role in the development/rehabilitation of speech, language, cognition and interaction.

· To provide workshops and education for speech-language pathologists, caregivers and the general public on PROMPT and speech production disorders.

· To develop, and participate in treatment and clinical research, involving dynamic multi-sensory systems, for children and adults with speech-production disorders.

· To develop specialized PROMPT clinical treatment and licensing programs for children and adults with speech production disorders.

In the 2000's PROMPT's main focus has been to integrate all of our previous research, experience, and writings into a cohesive model. The PROMPT model coming from a dynamic systems theoretical position utilizes tactual sensory information (in addition to auditory and visual), to support and develop speech-motor functioning leading to improved communication functioning across all domains. The model now provides for assessment across all domains and in depth analysis of the motor speech sub systems. It also discusses how to choose the best focus for intervention, how to plan and organize treatment and how to select and use the most appropriate level or levels of PROMPTs.
