Why Speech and Language Matters:
Being able to talk, read, write and listen are important skills for children as they build relationships on their life's journey. CSJ speech and language pathologists are experts in the many areas of communication and work hard to make a positive and life-changing impact on children's lives. In our therapy rooms we get our jewels to focus, relax, listen, laugh and learn.
PROMPT is a technique, approach and system that was developed by Deborah Hayden over 40 years ago that uses tactile-kinesthetic (touch information) to the articulators to guide them through the motor actions needed to produce sounds, syllables, words and phrases.
PROMPT is appropriate for a wide range of communication disorders. It can take time for children to find their voices, articulate clearly and become a confident speaker. The CSJ team has the knowledge base, expertise and experience to help our Jewels become successful communicators. And, each and every day the CSJ team learns from our jewels.
Current research and studies show that motor practice leads to rewiring the brain and hence new learning of motor information which is why PROMPT is effective.
