LAMP Workshops are designed for anyone who works with and cares for a non-verbal individual with autism – therapists, teachers, parents, carers etc. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about this effective therapeutic approach.
During the workshop you will receive an overview of the LAMP therapy approach: background and theory, discussion of the components of LAMP, how and why individuals with autism would benefit from using a voice output AAC device, discussion of device features that are beneficial for teaching language to individuals with autism.
Videos will be used to illustrate the therapy components.

What is LAMP?
Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP) is a therapeutic approach based on neurological and motor learning principles. LAMP gives individuals who are non-verbal or have limited verbal abilities a method of independently and spontaneously expressing themselves in any setting.
Because autism often includes dysfunction in motor planning and sensory processing, LAMP strategies are proving effective when used in conjunction with Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices that address these issues for accessing vocabulary. As communication skills improve, social engagement in individuals with autism often increases, problematic behaviours can decline, and some will exhibit increased verbal speech.
