Prompts are generally given by an adult before or as a toddler attempts to use a skill. With prompting procedures, parents, family members, early interventionists, child care providers, or other team member can use different types of prompts systematically to help toddlers with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) acquire target skills.

A variety of prompting procedures support the learning and development of toddlers with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

Two types of prompting procedures are covered in this module:

  • Least-to-Most Prompting

  • Graduated Guidance Prompting

Within this learning module, both prompting procedures will be presented with separate implementation steps, resources, and checklists.
