Rachael LangleyWhen Helping isn't Helping: Building Prompt Awareness within the TeamWhen teaching learners with complex communication needs, there is often an unspoken drive to prompt, prompt, prompt students to communicate. Educators and paraeducators with the best intentions of helping are often creating an overdependence upon prompts. Join this discussion on prompt hierarchies, least-to-most prompting, and the role of modeling in learning new skills.
