LAMP Words For Life® is a robust augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) iPad® 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
* 1 year free iSharePRC access
* 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.

Low volume

My son loves this app but the volume is kinda low. Today I put it on maximum volume but could barely hear him while driving. It’s fine if your at home with no noise otherwise it’s difficult to hear. Please fix.

Very Frustrated Today

It seems as though the app settings and customizations do not backup with iCloud backup.

Grabbed my sons device today for school and noticed the app had disappeared off the iPad (weird because it’s always in guided access to prevent things like that happening). Reinstalled the app and none of our custom buttons/icons were there. I restored the iPad from a previous cloud back up and still the app was back to original status. We lost months of custom button and phrase building because we thought the iCloud backup would protect us against lost data.

Incredibly frustrating and disheartening, my wife was almost in tears. Please make the app settings and customizations backup with iCloud backup. Just for piece of mind.

Developer Response ,

We are sorry this happened to you. Your custom vocabs will backup to iCloud as long as you have LAMP WFL enabled in your iCloud backup in the device settings. To restore, you would reset the iPad and restore from a backup.

Lag time

Great app when it works…however there is a lag problem in the app that causes too much time in between pushing a button and then the voice speaking the word button or to go to a new screen. I can’t seem to find any way to contact the developer to fix the problem. The link to report problem takes user to an error page.

Developer Response ,

Are you sure you don't have button timings set up? Please contact us at and we'll be happy to help.
