PROMPT

Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets (PROMPT) is a technique used by speech therapists for treating motor speech and language disorders. It is especially effective for children with apraxia and aphasia.

Benefits & Usage   

Voice & Speech Training

We utilize voice-activated interactive software that provides data acquisition and playback of the patient’s voice. It uses fun interactive games on a computer that is controlled by his/her voice, providing fun visual and auditory feedback. The software measures voice quality, such as pitch, volume, maximum phonation time (breath support), and voice onset (timing).

Benefits & Usage   

Oral Motor and Feeding

Oral motor therapy focuses on strengthening and stimulating weak muscles of the jaw, lip and tongue, and lengthening tight muscles in the mouth for speech and feeding. We use Beckman Oral Motor Protocol and Orofacial Deep Tissue Release to maximize outcomes.

Benefits & Usage
