Prompt Hierarchy
Prompt Hierarchy

This visual provides a general prompt hierarchy to display in the classroom or therapeutic setting. Prompts are ordered in terms of their degree of intrusiveness with full physical prompts described as most intrusive. The second page (not shown) begins with gesture prompts, moves to visual prompts, and ends with independence.

This visual is a useful reminder for staff and a quick way to offer information to substitutes and other adults coming into the classroom to work with students. Each of the prompts has an abbreviation for use when taking data.
