Snap + Core First is supported by an unparalleled ecosystem of content and a library of resources to help you learn and grow your literacy and communication skills. Created by leading professionals in the field, Snap + Core First’s broad range of supports will help to ensure successful language development.
Pathways for Core First
Tobii Dynavox Pathways is a free, one-of-a-kind companion app for Core First that’s packed with expert advice for how to meaningfully impact user communication success and guide them on their journey to literacy and independence. Designed to facilitate successful use of Snap + Core First software, Pathways is a unique learning gateway that will enhance your partner communication skills and features an interactive goal setting tool, lesson plans, and materials, cheat sheets, and videos to help you make the biggest impact on user success.
Core Word Lessons and Core Word Books
Free downloadable Core Word Lessons are designed to support the numerous free Core Word books we offer and lessons that focus on 3 key goals - to teach what each word means or how it is used, the position of the word in the system, and finally how the words work in connected text. There are no other pagesets today that make use of this type of teaching supports.
With Snap + Core First, you can back up all your files to the cloud via myTobiiDynavox.com, ensuring you’ll never have to worry about losing what you have created. Also, this is an excellent way to practice remote editing and modeling. Remote editing is important for parents or SLPs who want to make changes to their child’s pagesets while their child is still using the device for communication, and modeling is one of the best strategies for teaching someone how to use the device.
The Accessible Literacy Learning (ALL) Reading Program
The ALL program, created by Dr. Janice Light, Ph.D. and Dr. David McNaughton Ph.D., of Penn State University, is an evidence-based approach designed specifically to teach basic reading skills to students who are non-verbal and require augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).
Boardmaker Student Center app
Boardmaker Online offers a host of tools to support Speech Language Pathologists and Special Ed Teachers as they provide instruction to students. The Boardmaker Student Center app is where students of all abilities can go to access activities assigned to them through Boardmaker Online. The app brings the power of personalized visual supports and symbol-adapted educational materials.
