PROMPT provides support in a multi-sensory (with focus on tactile-kinesthetic) and dynamic way to support growth and development of speech and communication function. PROMPT aims to facilitate a client’s ability to produce speech sounds, to modify motor patterns already created for speech sounds, and to integrate motor, social-emotional, and cognitive-linguistic functions for the development of effective communication.
