PROMPT© Speech Therapy Clips

Video 1–Chronological age: 28 months (genetic disorder)

**During early motor-play activity
Types of PROMPTs: surface and parameter
Uses of PROMPT:
  1. To enhance child’s attention to the cognitive concepts: on, up, down
  2. To develop an interactive awareness for communication and attention to activity

Video 2–Chronological age: 30 months (genetic disorder)

**Functional Language Activity
Types of PROMPTs used: parameter and surface
Uses of PROMPT:
  1. To increase awareness to the social interaction with another person
  2. To develop an association between the simultaneous dynamic, multi-sensory input (tactile-kinesthetic and auditory) to the concepts: in, yeah, done
  3. To begin to develop jaw-driven speech production

Video 3: Chronological age: 41 months (genetic disorder)

**Functional Language Activity
Types of PROMPTs used: parameter, surface, and syllable
Uses of PROMPT:
  1. To develop interactive turn-taking
  2. To develop motor speech control for production of me, through jaw-driven speech initially
  3. To foster lips moving independent of the jaw

Video 4: Chronological age: 4 years 6 months (apraxia; sensory integration difficulties)

**Demonstration of Mass Practice Activity
Types of PROMPTs used: surface
Uses of PROMPT:
  1. To develop motor speech control for contraction of posterior portion of tongue for /k, g/ integrated with jaw stability and gradation

Video 5: Chronological age: 4 years 9 months (apraxia; sensory integration difficulties)

**Demonstration of Distributive Practice in Functional Language Activity
Types of PROMPTs used: surface
Uses of PROMPT:
  1. To refine motor speech control for posterior lingual control for /k, g/
  2. To differentiate contraction of the anterior and posterior areas of the tongue for /t, d/ vs. /k, g/

Video 6: Chronological Age 6 years 9 months (Diagnosis: Autism; Receptive and Expressive Language Deficits)

**Functional Language Activity
Types of PROMPTs used: surface and parameter
Uses of PROMPT:
  1. To link communicative intent with appropriate language (vs. echolalia) in a social setting, thereby increasing pragmatic language skills
  2. To establish the initial conditions for speech production with jaw closed and tongue positioned in the mouth
  3. To develop motor speech control for anterior lingual productions: /t, d, n, s, z/

Video 7: Chronological Age 8 years 1 month (Diagnosis: Autism; Receptive and Expressive Language Deficits)

**Functional Language Activity
Types of PROMPTs used: surface and parameter
Uses of PROMPT:
  1. To expand play schemes and spontaneous and novel utterances in social situations
  2. To integrate labial-facial control for protrusion and retraction with jaw stability
  3. To integrate lingual control with jaw stability and labial-facial protrusion and retraction
