LAMP Words For Life® is a robust augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) app that combines the power of Minspeak, the Unity® language system and Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP™) principles and strategies. LAMP is a therapeutic approach based on neurological and motor learning principles that addresses the language development and communication needs of individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities. It provides a consistent motor pattern per word so that automaticity can develop. With thousands of frequently used words pre-stored and the ability to store customized vocabulary, the app allows for unlimited language growth opportunities. With the focus on access to individual words, the communicator can put words together to express their own thoughts in a manner consistent with normal language development.

It is appropriate for anyone from beginning communicators who are just learning that they can affect those around them to skilled communicators with advanced language skills. Language development in typically developing children occurs through the combination of a consistent motor pattern, the sound that motor pattern produces, and the reaction they get from the environment. LAMP Words for Life presents vocabulary in the same manner so those language connections can be developed.

LAMP Words for Life app is symbol based for those who are not yet literate; however, those symbols are paired with text to support literacy development. The vocabulary, structure, and teaching approach are based on research and clinical experience.

What’s included?
* High-quality Acapela and Almagu voices, The VoiceKeeper unique voice or VocalID unique voice
* Pre-stored core and fringe words
* English (US), bilingual English (US) /Spanish (Mexico), and bilingual English (US) /French (Canada) vocabulary files
* Vocabulary Builder: Allows chosen words to be visible while the remaining vocabulary is hidden
* Word Finder: Helps the user find where words are stored
* Ability to store customized vocabulary and edit individual buttons
* Data Logging with ability to automatically sync with Realize Language™ for analysis

Three vocabulary levels within the app support language development from any skill level:

An introductory level features 83 core words that are only one touch away for immediate reinforcement.

A transition level requires a second button to be pressed before hearing those initial 83 core words paired with additional vocabulary. This level allows for the learning of extended motor patterns without the visual distractions of the full vocabulary file.

The full vocabulary file gives the device user access to verb conjugations and word endings. It includes 3,000+ words and allows for the customization of personalized vocabulary such as names, favorite foods, and favorite places.

Ive purchased this app for my Daughter, though have not been issued a receipt so as I can claim this. Can you please inform me of how I can get this please? ,

Great app

This is a great app and does everything expected. Just some minor things that would help make things easier:

1. seems like the data logging option is disabled in Australia despite all the help files showing the US and UK have that option.
2. Backup/restore to and from iCloud would help to synchronise between two iPads (eg iPad pro for home and mini for going out). The iTunes option is a bit outdated and airdrop doesn’t seem to work between two iPads with the same person signed into both.

Latest Update very glitchy

Wonderful program! My son who is non verbal has made so many leaps and bounds using the program however the latest update is very glitchy on the iPad. After pressing a few buttons, the program freezes, the clear button goes white and has to be shut down and restarted. My son gets frustrated and throws his iPad and does not want to use it on the iPad because of this reason. We bought the iPad version while we waited for his Accent 800. For the price of the app I would have thought the programme would be running glitch free.
