Training Opportunity at TCCRH
TCCRH is hosting a Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP) training. LAMP is an augmentative alternative communication (AAC) approach designed to give a method of independently and spontaneously expressing themselves through a speech generating device. This course will cover the components of LAMP: readiness to learn, engaging the learner through joint engagement, and learning language through a unique and consistent motor plan paired with an auditory signal and a natural consequence.
Join us for Two LAMP Trainings!
Day 1 is our traditional LAMP training. Day 2 is our advanced, hands-on training called Moving Forward. These classes will take place at the same location, on consecutive days, however, you MUST register for each class separately.
