  • July 31 - August 2nd Workshop "Introduction to the PROMPT Technique" at Mary Lanning Healthcare in Hastings

    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.
