This event has been cancelled due to COVID-19. Check back for future dates.
This 3 day intensive workshop focuses on teaching the technique of PROMPT. The training is hands-on tactile-kinesthetic input and emphasizes the need to integrate this into a holistic therapy approach. Please note that due to the hands-on training workshop attendees cannot have long fingernails when taking the workshop. Should you have any limitations in using your hands to apply PROMPTs to a training partner, or receiving PROMPTs on your face from a training partner, please contact email@example.com for potential accommodations.
All workshops run from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM, unless otherwise noted in the workshop listing.
At the conclusion of the Introduction to PROMPT: Technique workshop, participants will be able to:
- Describe the philosophy of PROMPT and its application principles.
- Apply different levels of PROMPTing (Parameter, Syllable, Complex, Surface) as appropriate to the selected cases.
- Analyze speech motor subsystems using the Systems Analysis Observation and Motor Speech Hierarchy.
- Design interactive therapy activities that utilize all of the above.
The price of this Workshop is $750. Registrations made after April 4, 2020 will incur a $100 late registration fee. Most workshops sell out several months before the workshop start date.

PROMPT, an acronym for PROMPTS for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets, is a multidimensional approach to speech production disorders has come to embrace 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. To achieve the best outcome with PROMPT it should not be thought of or used mainly to facilitate oral-motor skills, produce individual sounds/phonemes or as an articulation program but rather as a program to develop motor skill in the development of language for interaction.
