May 3, 2016: Language Acquistion through Motor Planning (LAMP)

Language Acquistion through Motor Planning (LAMP) is an augmentative alternative communication (AAC) approach designed to give individuals who are non-verbal or have limited verbal abilities a method of independently and spontaneously expressing themselves through the use of a voice output communication device. LAMP was initially developed to give non-verbal individuals with autism a means of communication but can be adapted to benefit individuals with a variety of disabilities. The components of LAMP address the features and vocabulary available on the device as well as the method of teaching communication while taking into account the individuals's sensory needs. Presented by John D. Halloran, M.S., CCC-SLP, Senior Clinical Associate for The Center for AAC and Autism and author of the LAMP approach.
