What is PROMPT Therapy?
PROMPT is an acronym for Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets. It is a therapy developed in the 1980's by Deborah Hayden, founder of the PROMPT® Institute. It is a holistic approach that assesses not just a client's speech movement patterns but how their speech production interacts with their language and cognitive abilities as well as their social and emotional skills. Therapy goals are set taking into account the whole person and their needs.
