PRC provides robust language systems that are appropriate for those with advanced language or can be simplified to meet the needs of beginning communicators. In this two-hour class participants will learn about the Unity®/LAMP Words for Life™ language systems as well as how to program and customize. The first segment of the class will review the guiding principles of these language systems and provide hands-on practice finding vocabulary. The second segment will cover customizing and simplifying the vocabulary. Hands-on practice is encouraged throughout the class, so come prepared to learn and practice.
