At Cobblestone Therapy Group, our speech and language pathologists help children and adolescents with expressive and receptive language development, speech development, articulation improvement, social communication, auditory processing, voice, resonance, and speech fluency (stuttering).

In the area of speech and language, our clinicians have a variety of specialized training that we incorporate into the therapy sessions to include:

  • P.R.O.M.P.T: 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.
