Abstract: The objective of this paper is to provide a theoretical framework for the use of the LAMBERT system in facilitating language acquisition in very young children and to demonstrate the LAMBERT system to professionals in the field of visually impaired education. The Language Acquisition Manipulatives Blending Educational Research and Technology (LAMBERT) system is designed to allow a very young child to manipulate objects and have a computer respond to that manipulation withspoken response. It is the author’s contention that this technology now being piloted at several schools for the visually impaired across the nation, may open new doors for practice and research.
