Prompting (PP) procedures are verbal, gestural, and/or physical assistance given to learners to help them in acquiring or engaging in a targeted behavior or skill (e.g., Barton, 2015; Barton & Wolery, 2010; Carlson et al., 2009). Adults generally give prompts before or as a toddler attempts to use a skill.
The AFIRM for Toddlers modules are designed for early intervention providers working with caregivers (families and childcare providers) of toddlers.
