STAMPPP Launch - September 2013
Leonardo, part of the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme is supporting an innovative project aimed at updating and translating a multimedia program first developed in N. Ireland by local charity Parents' Education as Autism Therapists (www.peatni.org). The project is called STAMPPP (Science and the treatment of autism: A multimedia package for parents and professionals - www.stamppp.com) and it involves partners from Netherlands, Italy, Sweden, and Iceland, with translations also to be available in Portuguese, German, Spanish, and Norwegian.
The multimedia program is called Simple Steps (www.simplestepsautism.com) and it uses video material in the form of parental testimonies, animations, demonstrations, and textural material to teach the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis. The goal is to demonstrate how the practice of science impacts on how one maximises the learning opportunities for children with autism. If parents can be helped to become proficient in delivering home programs for their children, it will make it easier to coordinate these learning opportunities for the child with those provided within a school. Of course, parents will still need to be supervised by a professional trained in Applied Behaviour Analysis to international standards.
The launch date for the completed STAMPPP project is Sept 20th, which will take place in Belfast, N. Ireland (http://www.qub.ac.uk/cba/).
For more information, contact Prof. Mickey Keenan at the University of Ulster (email:
