Snap + Core First gives you the power to fulfill your potential
Snap is designed to be intuitive and easy to get started with so you don’t have to spend hours on choosing the right software, setup, or getting the right content in place – it’s already done for you! At the heart of Snap is the Core First® pageset, a research-based Core Word framework to help you continuously build your vocabulary and communication skills. Core First is built on three pillars for communication success: growth, engagement and literacy.
Empower your communication journey with Snap + Core First
Who is Snap + Core First for?
Tobii Dynavox Snap is the pinnacle in symbol-based communication software for symbol-supported communicators and is designed to be the easiest to use, most intuitive, and consistently arranged solution available on the market, for both the user and the communication partner. Individuals of all ages with speech and language disabilities, including those with Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Intellectual Disabilities, etc., can all benefit from Snap + Core First.
What makes Snap + Core First unique?
Snap is unlike anything that Tobii Dynavox has created before. Our previous software were single titles created to work for everyone, this new software targets and focuses on Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) users who primarily use symbol-based communication. When creating Snap, we did bring together the best parts of our previous software titles that we know worked best.
The Snap Difference
Literacy rates are extremely low for those who use AAC to communicate. In fact, according to “Literacy Intervention for Transition-Aged Youth: What Is and What Could Be”, by B. Foley and Julie A. Wolter, 90% of students in America with complex communication needs enter adulthood without acquiring functional literacy skills. Lack of literacy is an enormous barrier to education, independence, and many of life’s opportunities. With Snap, we are providing the best symbol-based communication experience available but also what is needed for a parent, teacher, or therapist and a child to work together so that the child can become a successful communicator, learn language, and ultimately achieve literacy.
In-the-moment communication is crucial and no one wants to waste time figuring out where something is or how to edit content quickly. Not only is Snap designed with a truly modern and appealing interface, but the real beauty is the ease of customization and consistency of content which allows for immediate access to what you want to say. In addition, the new “Search” tool gives you the power to find anything in the system just by typing in a word or phrase and easily learning the path to get there. This feature is helpful for modeling, which is one of the best strategies for teaching someone how to use the software.
Expertise and experience you can trust
Snap + Core First is the innovative result of a highly experienced team from Tobii Dynavox made up of educators, clinicians, PhDs, engineers, and professionals who are passionate about empowering others to reach their full potential. We work every day to help people communicate and achieve literacy, so they can live richer and more independent lives.
