PROMPT is a therapy technique for treating speech sound disorders. I am one of a few PROMPT trained therapists in Utah. PROMPT can be a powerful and highly effective technique.
R is the most difficult sound to learn in the English language. Some children spend years in speech therapy trying to master this troublesome sound—which in reality is many sounds when you count R blends and the six vocalic R sounds (ear, air, are, or, ire, er). I have devoted much of my career to studying the complexities of R. In my experience, most children who struggle with R have underlying motor issues that must be resolved before R can be mastered. Over many years of experience I have perfected my technique for identifying and remediating specific motor issues so that R can be learned. I’m currently writing a book describing my technique for teaching R.
