Chatting, tittle-tattle, small talk. We all need it but it's difficult to start and it sometimes gets forgotten in pagesets. It is not easy to break the ice. In such cases, it can be nice to get a nudge thanks to a conversation starter. You can already find this in extensive vocabularies such as SCORE and now also as a free pageset in Mind Express 5.

Steps Before Step Scanning 2.0

By Linda Burkhart

English
Only suited for Mind Express 4
SymbolStix    

This is an updated version of Steps Before Step Scanning that includes the ability to create individual student launchers in addition to using the ready-made activities.

This collection of activities has been designed to help individuals with severe multiple and physical challenges to develop the motor/cognitive abilities to activate first a single switch, and then 2 switches, based upon the individual’s own intent.  There is no ‘timing’ aspect in any of these activities.  This is because slowing down enables the individual’s brain to more easily process the motor and cognitive information to form new neurological connections.

The ability to customize pictures, music and videos makes these activities engaging and motivating for individual students.

This is the first set of activities in series that will be available for children learning to use two switch step scanning.  All activities are based on the ‘Stepping Stones to Switch Access’ by Linda J. Burkhart.  Some of these activities were previously available for IntelliTools Classroom Suite.

The activities are protected but can be tried out for 10 days. After this demo period, you'll need an activation code. For directions on how to use these activities, purchasing information, and tech support in your country, click here

PLEASE NOTE: switches need to be set to send 1 and 2 instead of space and enter for these activities to work

SCORE communication page set (UK) - SymbolStix version

Only suited for Mind Express 4
SymbolStix    

SCORE is a symbol based strategy that can be used at a very early stage to develop and increase language development, thereby facilitating and improving communication skills. This pageset has been specifically designed for the UK and is based on the SymbolStix symbol set

The SCORE strategy is research-based and it consists of a set of low tech communication boards, a more extended communication binder and a comprehensive communication page for Mind Express. The basic idea with the communication boards and the binder is to provide a set of communication aids that make the combination of core and fringe vocabulary as easy as possible. The materials differ in complexity but all have the same structure and similar positions of the words.

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.

SCORE also includes extensive multimedia capabilities such as music, video, calculator, internet radio, youtube, sms, e-mail and camera. In addition, you can easily personalize SCORE with a custom color scheme, you can set focus words to temporarily focus on learning specific vocabulary and there are letter cards and phonetic letter cards available.


CURRENT VERSION (May 15 2020): 1.82

The SCORE vocabulary can be tried for free for 30 days.

In order to continue working after these 30 days, you must have an activation code that can be requested via info@jabbla.com.
