CoreWord Language System
The CoreWord Language System provides augmented and alternative communication (AAC) app users with a combination of core language, fringe vocabulary, and banks of key phrases.
- The language system is divided into three distinct levels that correspond with vocabulary layouts: CoreWord 6, 20, and 40.
- CoreWord 6 is a 3x2 grid set designed for beginning communicators and those who require larger buttons for access.
- CoreWord 20, a 5x4 grid set that includes everything provided in CoreWord 6 as well as other features such as predictive linking, which keeps the words users need at their fingertips
- CoreWord 40 offers more complex content, grammar tools, and rate enhancement features.
- The system features dynamic vocabulary layouts that automatically change as the user makes selections.
- Once a word has been selected, the layout updates to show only words that are likely to be used next.
- By offering these next words in plain view and removing unwanted vocabulary, users should spend less time looking for their next words.
- Fitzgerald color coding.
- Consistent cell locations promote motor planning.
- Cell shapes denote function.
- Each level incorporates activities and accessible features that motivate users to engage with their device, including interactive learning activities, animated grids that develop cause-and-effect, choice making, matching, and problem-solving.
- Keyguard-friendly organization.
- Support for all access methods, including touch, head mouse, switch scanning, and eye tracking.
