A prompt is a stimulus that is used either to increase a desirable response or to decrease an undesirable response. Prompts are behavioral interventions that direct your client's or staff member's attention to the required behavior. Prompts can be verbal, physical, or environmental cues as to the action you wish your client or staff member to take.

Examples of a verbal prompt occur when parents prompt their children to do homework and household chores. On the tape, an example of a verbal prompt is, "to orient the resident to time, place and person."

Questions can serve as prompts. Give an example of an(a)...

(1) Open Ended Question

(2) Choice Question

(3) Yes-No Question

Delayed prompting: Over time, as your client or staff member continues to respond correctly to your prompt, a trial period might be initiated in which the prompt is delayed. By delaying the prompt, your client or staff member has an opportunity to respond correctly without the prompt.

The concept of expectancy is introduced via:
A. the type of instructions you give about the target behavior
B. your client's or staff member's prior experience with similar situations
For example, on the tape, it is indicated that a voice tone conveying respect and warmth is needed. The voice tone in your instruction sets up an expectancy in your client or staff member.

(4) Give an example of a verbal prompt used with a client or a staff member.

Fatty acids can slow down an overheated immune system - September 20, 2018
The STING protein is normally an important part of our immune system, but in some autoimmune diseases it is itself the source of the disease. The pharmaceutical industry is therefore engaged in a race to find a drug that can inhibit STING. Now, researchers may have found it.
Mediterranean-style diet may lower women's stroke risk - September 20, 2018
Following a Mediterranean-style diet (high in fish, fruits and nuts, vegetables and beans and lower in meat and dairy) reduced stroke risk in women over 40, but not in men. The Mediterranean-style diet reduced stroke risk among white adults who were at high risk of cardiovascular disease.
Discovery could explain failed clinical trials for Alzheimer's, and provide a solution - September 20, 2018
A vicious feedback loop underlying brain degeneration in Alzheimer's disease may explain why so many drug trials have failed, according to researchers. Their study also identifies a clinically approved drug which breaks the vicious cycle and protects against memory-loss in animal models of Alzheimer's.
Brain recovery: Activity, not rest, may speed recovery after brain injury - September 17, 2018
When recovering from a brain injury, getting back in the swing of things may be more effective than a prolonged period of rest, according to a new study in mice. These findings offer a compelling example of the brain's remarkable capacity to adapt in response to trauma. They also point to new, activity-centered treatment strategies that could one day result in faster and more complete recovery times for patients looking to regain mobility after a brain damage or a stroke.
Daily low-dose aspirin found to have no effect on healthy life span in older people - September 16, 2018
