Product Description
This is a list of the most commonly used terms for documenting the categories of instructional prompting. It is meant to be printed out and put up on the class room walls in several locations. It should be visible to anyone providing direct instruction, especially the paraprofessionals/teaching assistants. It has been found by many teachers to be a very helpful tool. It can be used to train/remind paraprofessionals to document the level of prompting required to assist a student in the completion of a task. Without some form of documentation how would anyone reviewing a completed worksheet or folder activity know how much assistance was given, or should have been given? A properly trained paraprofessional should be able to provide, and fade prompts when possible to encourage increasing levels of independence/demonstration of skills. Otherwise, the activity can be a complete waste of time. Some students will accept hand over hand assistance indefinitely. There has to be a continuing effort made to maintain rigor if academic progress is expected in a relatively timely manner.
