course-thumbnailWe will continue to discover “Your Core Mission” in phase 3 of this series. During part one and two of the series, participants explored the power of core vocabulary in AAC systems as well as how core vocabulary is realized in two specific language systems: LAMP Words for Life and WordPower. Our next step to complete our mission is to dive deeper into how to implement these language systems to foster communication and language development. This 90-minute class will highlight strategies for getting started with core vocabulary for those who use AAC. Participants will apply these strategies and learn how to support children who use LAMP WFL and WordPower through hands-on practice working through case studies and in engaging with videos and active discussion.

 This is Phase 3 in a 3-part series for Your Core Mission.

Mission intended for: SLPs and other clinicians and classroom support personnel who support users who are using, or who may be candidates for, LAMP WFL and WordPower. Recommended prerequisite skills: strong understanding of core vocabulary and organization of LAMP WFL and WordPower (e.g., completion of Phase 1 and Phase 2).

Devices are optional, but if you have an Accent, Chat Fusion, NovaChat, PRiO, TouchChat Express, Via Pro, LAMP Words for Life app, or TouchChat app to follow along, it is encouraged.

  1. List 3 strategies for teaching core in any AAC system
  2. Assess support options for teams implementing multiple language/vocabulary systems in one setting
  3. Identify 3 sample activities for implementing core vocabulary using LAMP WFL or WordPower with an emergent communicator
  4. Develop a new activity and target words for one of the two language systems discussed.
