    My students are prompt dependent on verbal and physical prompts

    does anyone have a simple chart on prompts hierarchy.

    Do you have Boardmaker? I have one that I post in my room that is made with Boardmaker that I can send to you if you do.

    Just a note about prompting and prompt dependence. I have found that if you have a prompt dependent student you may have to go back to an earlier step in the task breakdown and begin teaching the whole thing again without the prompts and then build back up. It might seem like going backwards but if the prompt has become part of the chain then you need to rebuild each step of the chain for some students (my son is a prime example of this).

    From Wikipedia:

    Prompting
    A prompt is a cue or assistance to encourage the desired response from an individual.[66] Prompts are often categorized into a prompt hierarchy from most intrusive to least intrusive. There is some controversy about what is considered most intrusive: physically intrusive versus hardest prompt to fade (ie. verbal).[67] In an faultless learning approach, prompts are given in a most-to-least sequence and faded systematically to ensure the individual experiences a high level of success.[68] There may be instances in which a least-to-most prompt method is preferred. Prompts are faded systematically and as quickly as possible to avoid prompt dependency. The goal of teaching using prompts would be to fade prompts towards independence, so that no prompts are needed for the individual to perform the desired behavior.[69][70]
    Types of prompts:
    Verbal prompts: Utilizing a vocalization to indicate the desired response.
    Visual Prompts: a visual cue or picture.
    Gestural prompts: Utilizing a physical gesture to indicate the desired response.
    Positional prompt: The target item is placed closer to the individual.
    Modeling: Modeling the desired response for the student. This type of prompt is best suited for individuals who learn through imitation and can attend to a model.
    Physical prompts: Physically manipulating the individual to produce the desired response. There are many degrees of physical prompts. The most intrusive being hand-over-hand, and the least intrusive being a slight tap to initiate movement.

    I know that Boardmaker Share has a ton of prompt visuals for the classroom.
