Event description

Description

Ace Centre are pleased to offer this free session from Techcess.

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

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.

The SCORE strategy is research based (University of Cologne). It consists of a set of low tech communication boards, a more extended communication binder and a comprehensive communication page for Mind Express. The most frequently used core words are consistently organised in a static frame around a dynamic block of fringe words. This setup gives the user access to core vocabulary at any time. The fringe vocabulary is alphabetically organized in main and subcategories. Grammar functions are dynamically presented, based on the parts of speech, and can be used to build grammatically correct messages and sentences. Learners and their communication partners use and practise with a set of selected focus words (core and fringe) for a number of weeks and during several activities throughout the day, receptively as well as expressively, and in different contexts (modelling). The idea is that if the child language development is facilitated and therefore improves, then the child’s communication skills will automatically follow. The availability of both low-tech and high-tech resources allows a multi modal approach and support modelling variation.
