The new Tobii Dynavox Core First pageset is unlike any others because it allows the user to start where their skills are and then encourages a systematic progression of skills, which keeps them moving forward!
Core is a small set of basic, often used words that can be combined to create unique messages and that are systematically introduced so the user has an appropriate and manageable number of words that increases at subsequent steps, while not changing position as new vocabulary is added.
