Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP)

Watson is hosting a Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP) training seminar on Friday, July 21, 2017 at the Education Center South in Bridgeville, PA from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Language Development & Communication in Children with Autism

The principles of the LAMP training use a therapeutic approach based on neurological and motor learning to improve communication in children with autism spectrum disorder. Children with autism participating in a LAMP-based curriculum will learn methods to communicate independently and spontaneously using a voice output Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) device. Participants will learn the features and vocabulary that are available for users of the device and how to encourage language development in a child with autism, taking into account that child’s individual sensory needs.

During the Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP) training seminar, participants working with children with autism will learn how to engage their students in motivation activities and encourage language development using motor planning paired with an auditory signal and a natural consequence.

The LAMP training seminar will include discussions about the core language development deficits of Autism Spectrum Disorder as well as videos used to illustrate how to implement LAMP treatment with your students.

Reserve your spot today and register for the July 21st Language Acquisition through  Motor Planning (LAMP) training seminar!
