PROMPT Technique Workshops

9 December 2017 @ 9:00 am - 17 December 2017 @ 4:30 pm HKT

Introduction workshop A, B : 9-11 December, 2017
Bridging workshop : 15-17 December, 2017



PROMPT (PROMPTs for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets) is a treatment approach for speech disorders. It was first developed by Deborah A. Hayden, M.A.,CCC-SLP, SL-P(C) in the late 1970’s. PROMPT stands out from other treatment approaches in that it leverages on tactual-kinesthetic- proprioceptive input to oro-motor structures, together with neuromotor and linguistic principles, to help remediate speech disorders.


What can participants expect to learn from Introduction to PROMPT Technique?

Clinicians are exposed to the Motor Speech Hierarchy for observation of what is usable or functional in the motor-speech system, to determine where motor speech systems begin to break down, to learn which motor behaviours result in sound productions and their development, and to decide where to begin treatment. Clinicians will be systematically exposed to the Application Principles of PROMPT (Head/hand support, control of jaw, labial-facial and lingual; and the integration and transition of those structures); and how to use PROMPT at the Parameter, Syllable Complex and Surface level. PROMPTing with normal peers will be used to practise the critical differences in structure and developmental preferences of movement.


Introduction workshop objectives

At the conclusion of this workshop participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the PROMPT Application Principles
  2. Apply different levels of PROMPTing (Parameter, Syllable Complex, Surface),as appropriate to the selected case at a BASIC (phoneme, CVC, or phrase) level.
  3. Demonstrate a working familiarity with the Motor-Speech Hierarchy.
  4. Analyze, using the Systems Analysis Checklist, the strengths and weaknesses of a client’s motor speech system.


What can participants expect to learn from Bridging PROMPT Technique to Intervention?

This 3 day course teaches clinicians more about the technique of PROMPT and focuses on setting appropriate goals and objectives for the individual within the PROMPT framework. This training assists clinicians in incorporating PROMPT therapy across a range of settings, including the home environment, while maintaining a focus on the key needs for the individual to assist them to develop to their potential.


Bridging Workshop objectives

At the conclusion of this workshop participants will be able to:

  1. Describe and Apply the PROMPT Application principles and Technique.
  2. Differentiate and apply, alone or in conjunction, PROMPT Parameter, Syllable, Complex and Surface prompts with varying speech production disorders.
  3. Describe and Demonstrate the three planes of movement and how they are used in PROMPT.
  4. Identify initial Parameters and priorities to begin goal setting with various client exemplars.
  5. Develop motor-speech goals that bridge technique to language and social interaction.
