Host a Workshop
Thank you for your interest in hosting a training. We look forward to working with you to provide an informative, fun and safe atmosphere for learning! The Center for AAC and Autism strives to provide the highest level of service while also following all local and state guidelines for COVID-19 safety as well as recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization regarding gatherings.
Requests to host a LAMP training can be made by filling out the LAMP Request Form. Please make a request five months prior to the desired date of the workshop. Selection of host sites is at the discretion of the Center of AAC & Autism based on a number of factors (location, room capacity, number of applicants, and presenter availability, etc.). Once selected, the hosting center will be contacted to work out details.
The Center for AAC & Autism will be doing in-person trainings only when we can comply with CDC and local guidelines, and we feel we can ensure the health and safety of our hosts, attendees, and trainers. Until further notice, attendance will be limited to 30 people, seats will be 6 feet apart and facial coverings are suggested. We will be monitoring the local Covid incidence rate and will only proceed if it falls within the low-moderate range (https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#cases_casesper100klast7days) as the training date nears. Trainings may be moved online as necessary. Flexibility will be key as local and state guidelines change.
The Center for AAC & Autism is able to offer public trainings by working with host sites that can offer space for the presentations. In return, the host site receives ten free registrations for their staff and the opportunity for three of their clients to receive a one-month AAC device loan to try the LAMP™ approach
