Our therapists are all PROMPT certified or trained. In addition to speech therapy, we offer feeding support by a certified speech and language therapist/specialist.  

 

We believe in working collaboratively with multidisciplinary teams and provide individualized care. 

What is PROMPT Therapy?

PROMPT is an acronym for Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets. The technique is a tactile-kinesthetic approach that uses touch cues to a patient’s articulators (jaw, tongue, lips) to manually guide them through a targeted word, phrase or sentence. The technique develops motor control and the development of proper oral muscular movements, while eliminating unnecessary muscle movements, such as jaw sliding and inadequate lip rounding.
