About the Presenters
John Halloran, a speech-language pathologist, is the Senior Clinical Associate for The Center for AAC and Autism. He has worked in the field of AAC since 1994 and is co-author of the Language Acquisition through Motor Planning approach.
John received his master’s in Communicative Disorders from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in 1992. After graduation, he worked at Arkansas Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center, specializing in assistive technology. He has also owned a pediatric therapy clinic and after-school care for children with disabilities. He has taught augmentative communication at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. He has a special interest in children who are challenged by severe physical or cognitive disabilities. He also finds much reward in exploring ways to best implement assistive technology with children who have autism. He has presented extensively on the LAMP approach.
Lance McLemore is an ambassador for Prentke Romich Company and The Center for AAC and Autism. He has presented at several conferences. He got his first AAC device when he was about 24. In 2016 he started using an Accent 1000 from PRC. He found the first robust language system that allowed him to communicate quickly and fluently: LAMP Words for Life. He shares his experience and insight with this language system at conferences, workshops, trainings, universities, schools, and camps. He wants more people to be aware of AAC and the lives of people who use it.
