Event description

Description

Techcess will be introducing a new core based vocabulary called Score.

Score is a communication system heavily based on research. Central to Score is the language development. Using a communication book learned through modelling, the user’s language is progressively developed. This principle was translated into a Mind Express vocabulary.

Score consists of a set of low tech communication boards, an extended communication binder and a comprehensive communication page set for Mind Express. The most frequently used core words are consistently organised in a static frame around a dynamic block of fringe words. This clever setup gives the user access to core vocabulary at any time. Grammar functions are dynamically presented, based on the part of speech, and can be used to build grammatically correct messages.

Learners and their communication partners use and practice with a set of selected focus words for a number of weeks, receptively as well as expressively, and in different contexts. The idea is that if the child’s language development is facilitated and subsequently improves, then the child's communication skills will also improve. The availability of both low-tech and high-tech resources allows a multi model approach and supports modelling variation.

The seminar will be hosted by Bart Noe, Judy King & Gillian Rumble.
