This online course is designed to further the communication partner’s ability to implement the Language Acquisition through Motor Planning approach at different language stages and across environments. The language structure of the LAMP Words for Life language system and use of device features to support language learning will be explored. Participants will receive some hands-on time and will need access to Accent device with Empower software or emulation software: (https://www.prentrom.com/prc-advantage/empower-demo). Discussion will include assessing current language level, setting goals for developmental progression, and analyzing data logging. The presenter will cover a variety of strategies and supports to support language development such as expanding vocabulary in natural environments, modeling, teaching the motor plan, and how to use aided language input. Videotaped sessions will be used for group discussion about strategies that work and common mistakes. Suggestions for language development in school settings will also be addressed.
