A child with autism who is prompt dependent can be a real problem. Today, I’m talking about what prompt dependence is, how you can start prompt fading with autism transfer procedures, and what causes this problem behavior. Is it bad to be prompt dependent? Yes, but it can be resolved! When a child responds with prompts, he/she is relying on you or another person, provided they give the prompt or partial prompt. Needing prompts to respond blocks the child from being independent, and my goal for every child is for them to be as happy and as independent as they can be.

Dr. Mary Barbera. I fell into the autism world as an autism mom in 1999 when her first-born son, Lucas, was diagnosed with autism. Since then, she became a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst and best-selling author of The Verbal Behavior Approach. Since 2015, she’s created 3 autism online courses based on applied behavior analysis for professionals and "gung-ho" parents. Whether you’re looking for autism parenting strategies, working with development delays in children, or in search for autism help for professionals, I can encourage you to subscribe to the channel and join me on my journey.
