PRC believes in providing single words for novel communication. In this three-hour product training participants will learn about LAMP Words for Life (WFL) as well as programming, customizing, and basic implementation of the vocabulary. The difference between LAMP and LAMP WFL will be discussed as well as the three levels of LAMP WFL: 84 1-hit, 84 transition and 84 full. The first segment will provide hands-on practice with the vocabulary. The second segment will cover Word Finder, Vocabulary Builder, customizing and adding words. The third section will review basic implementation strategies to get someone talking with LAMP WFL on an Accent. A variety of tools and strategies for teaching LAMP WFL will be reviewed. Hands-on practice is encouraged throughout the course, so come prepared to learn and practice.
Please note, this training is intended for those who are using LAMP WFL on an Accent product. This training is not for those using the LAMP WFL app on an iPad. This training briefly discusses the LAMP approach, but it is not a LAMP training. To learn about the LAMP approach, please visit http://www.aacandautism.com
