Language Acquisition Through Motor Planning (LAMP)

LAMP is an augmentative alternative communication (AAC) approach designed to give 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 system 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.

You may cancel up to two weeks prior to the workshop for a $35 cancellation fee. Within the two weeks prior to the workshop no refund will be available.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Define the role of readiness to learn and shared focus in the implementation of AAC with children with ASD.
  2. Explain the importance of using motor patterning to develop motor automaticity for children with ASD who use AAC.
  3. Examine the use of a form/function profile as well as an interest inventory for use with children with ASD.
  4. Discuss implementation strategies for teaching children with ASD to use AAC.
  5. Discuss strategies for analyzing the efficacy of communication treatment.

Lunch is NOT provided

Must sign up through the Center for AAC & Autism- https://www.aacandautism.com/training

Cost is 119.00 for professionals and $59.50 for parents and students

ASHA credit provided 0.5 credits
