Prompt Therapy

 

The PROMPT System Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets) was formally devised by D. Hayden in 1980 after working extensively with/and researching varied speech production disordered populations. Since that time, over a span of 19 Years, Deborah has continued to develop PROMPT as a Technique, System, Approach, and Philosophy.
PROMPT is based on neurological, anatomical, cognitive-linguistic and motor theory principles. It has been said that "PROMPT directly translates the neuro-muscular movements required for the phonemic system, connects them to linguistic-codes and articulatory sequences for communicative interactions".

Smart Palate

 

The SmartPalate System removes guessing from speech therapy by showing students exactly where their tongue is supposed to touch their palate to produce different speech sounds. This biofeedback system consists of a customized acrylic mouthpiece with sensors that capture tongue-to-palate contact (the SmartPalate) and a software program which allows students to use the feedback to match their tongue placement to the articulation patterns for their target sounds. These “tongue targets” allow speech therapy students to quickly produce sounds they have previously struggled to say simply by positioning their tongue to light up the corresponding dots or contact points for that sound.

The Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol (K-SLP)

The Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol is a way of teaching children with apraxia of speech the easiest way of saying words until they have increased motor-speech coordination. Children are taught the shell of words without including too many of the complex consonants, vowels, or syllables which make a word too difficult to even attempt on a motor basis. This teaching method is a reflection of how young children attempt “first words.” For example, the word “bottle” may begin as “ba,” progress to “baba,” later becomes “bado,” and eventually, “bottle.”
