Kids Can Do Banner


Kids Can Do provides PROMPT therapy as an additional treatment approach for speech. PROMPT was developed by Deborah Hayden over a period of thirty years. It is a systematic approach that encompasses neuromotor principles, as well as kinesthetic, proprioceptive, auditory, and visual information to provide feedback to the speech system. The PROMPT technique uses touch, pressure, and specific placement, while creating auditory and visual awareness to support and develop movements of speech. The system has been used with a variety of speech deficits including: phonological disorders, developmental delay, dysarthria, dyspraxia, hearing impaired, autistic spectrum, and fluency disorders. PROMPT is meant to integrate the most effective, traditional and/or new, innovative approaches that augment, support and enhance speech production interventions thereby achieving the maximum treatment results.
