Session Information

10:40 - 11:20am (room 1, 2 & 3)

Room 1: Learning with LAMP

Presenter(s): Jenny Lawrence, Liberator

Suitable for: Primary & Secondary, FE & HE, Special Schools, ASN bases

Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP) is a therapeutic approach which aims to give individuals who are non or minimally speaking, a method of independently and spontaneously expressing themselves in any setting. The LAMP approach uses an AAC vocabulary, or set of words, called LAMP words for life. As with many AAC approaches, successful implementation of LAMP includes modelling of the vocabulary from those supporting LAMP.

In this workshop, I will share practical resources and real-life solutions to help overcome some perceived barriers to implementing LAMP WFL within a classroom setting. The resources I discuss will all be available for delegates following the session

Room 2: Unlimited Resources, digital Interventions - ASN and IDL

Presenter(s): Luke Butcher, IDLS Group

Suitable for: Primary, Secondary, FE & HE

For any intervention to be successful, it needs to be Affective and Effective. Both science and experience show us that if a child is not engaged with their learning, it will embed less effectively. Disorganising difficulties like dyscalculia and dyslexia have a profound impact on the way information is stored in the brain – fortunately, technology is really good with information!

In this session, Luke will talk about the benefits of unlimited resources offered by digital interventions, how technology can be seamlessly integrated into every lesson and how digital screening can change the landscape of identifying ASN at an early stage - without removing the humanity. He will model how digital manipulatives can boost learning, reduce school costs and provide continuous feedback to focus future interventions.
