Workshop Registration Details


Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP) 1 day

LAREDO Area LEAs will be selected first for this workshop. An in person workshop will be offered at the Region One- Edinburg Location. LAMP is an augmentative alternative communication (AAC) approach designed to give individuals who are nonverbal a method of independently and spontaneously expressing themselves through a speech generating device. This course will cover the components of LAMP: readiness to learn, engaging the learner through joint engagement, and learning language through a unique and consistent motor plan paired with an auditory signal and a natural consequence. Discussion will include how this approach addresses the core language deficits of autism, device features that are beneficial to teaching language, and how to use those features to implement LAMP components. Videos will be used to illustrate the treatment components.
PRCs language systems and devices will be used to illustrate treatment components; however, LAMP principles can be applied to other products. Due to the limited duration of this course, hands-on time with devices will be limited to breaks.
