Less is More, More or Less! Prompting, Prompt Fading, and Getting Young Children to Independence



There's a balancing act to prompting and prompt-fading. Prompts are used to increase the likelihood that a child will provide a desired response, while fading is gradually reducing the prompt. (Alberto & Troutman, 2003). Fade prompts too quickly and errors may occur; fade prompts too slowly and prompt-dependency can occur. Participants will identify various prompt levels, compare and contrast types of prompts to use in conjunction with targeted skill goals, and how and when to fade prompts to increase student independence. Our goal is to always aim for student independence, and with the right balance of prompts and prompt-fading, students can generalize their skills and abilities across all learning environments.
