Levels of Prompting
Prompting is a means to induce an individual with added stimuli (prompts) to perform a desired behavior. Prompting is provided when an ordinary antecedent is ineffective, and is extensively used in behavior shaping and skill acquisition. It provides learners with assistance to increase the probability that a desired behavior will occur. Successful performance of a desired behavior elicits positive reinforcement, therefore reinforcing learning. A prompt is like a cue or support to encourage a desired behavior that otherwise does not occur.
