Here is what you can do to advocate for speech-language pathology treatment.
PROMPT is a multidimensional approach to speech production disorders. It embraces not only the well-known physical-sensory aspects of motor performance, but also its cognitive-linguistic and social-emotional aspects. PROMPT is about integrating all domains and systems towards positive communication outcome. It may be used (with varying intensity and focus) with all speech production disorders from approximately 6 months of age onward.
PROMPT training gives clinicians a more organized way to assess all domains and organize this information for the most effective, functional treatment program. Clinicians also learn how to give specific tactile input to their clients' articulators to facilitate production, revise or change production or to integrate motor production with cognitive-linguistic function.
1.8 ASHA CEUs are being offered.
Speech Pathologists are the only professionals with the prerequisite knowledge to apply PROMPT in the holistic manner in which it is intended to be used. Therefore, only Speech Pathologists are trained fully to provide PROMPT therapy.
Learn how speech-language pathologists are making a difference in the lives of students.
