COVID-19 Guidelines

The PROMPT Institute has been receiving many requests for a policy regarding the provision of PROMPT treatment during the COVID-19 outbreak. Due to PROMPT therapy being conducted around the world and in many different treatment settings, we are unable to provide a blanket policy that covers all jurisdictions and treatment environments. 

We have the following guidelines that are always in place regardless of an outbreak or pandemic: 

  1. The regulations/recommendations of your local jurisdiction take precedence. This would include any local and/or national health department recommendations. Those must be followed at all times. 

  1. Employers have various policies to protect their employees. Please ensure you are aware of your employer’s policies and you are following them as required. 

  1. We recommend in the absence of any regulations, health department recommendations or employer policies that you exercise your best clinical judgement regarding the safety of your client, their families, your co-workers and yourself. 

  1. Always put your health first when providing any type of treatment. If you do not feel safe, discontinue your treatment immediately. 

Please note that many organizations and independent SLPs have decided to temporarily discontinue using tactile PROMPTs at this time. We ask that you consider the above guidelines in your personal decision to continue using tactile PROMPTs. Many SLPs that have discontinued the use of tactile PROMPTs are incorporating other PROMPT elements that continue to support their clients’ PROMPT treatment plans. 

We hope the above guidelines help you make the very difficult decision to continue/discontinue your use of tactile PROMPTs at this time. 

Clinicians that have registered to participate in PROMPT workshops in March and April that have concerns about attending the workshop, please use the contact us function on our website. Due to heavy call volume, the contact us form is the best way to have your questions answered.
