Gateway to Language and Learning© is a series of core word page sets that supports the language learning needs of young children and facilitates efficient communication for the competent communicator.


Gateway© is a research-based core word vocabulary designed by Joan Bruno, Ph.D., CCC-SLP.

There is consistency in the design of all Vocabulary Levels to enable a user to seamlessly move across grid sizes (e.g. 5*6, 6*9, etc.) or advance to the next level of complexity (e.g., Developing Language to Advanced Communicator) while maintaining ones level of communicative competence.

The underlying philosophy of Gateway is to enable effective and efficient communication.  All individuals need to be able to say what they want to say, when they want to say it, and to be able to do so with a minimum of effort.  Within Gateway, effective communication is achieved by providing AAC users access to a high frequency core vocabulary and fringe vocabulary that is selected to match a user’s age, needs, interests, and linguistic abilities.  Efficient communication is achieved by minimizing the number of key selections required to speak each word.  The Gateway vocabulary was organized to give the user access to its core vocabulary using an average of less than 1.5 key selections per word.

Gateway© 40 is designed to meet the needs of school-aged children who are learning to combine symbols to form multi-word messages. These users have the potential to learn to use word endings, articles and prepositions and to create syntactically complex sentences. This page set is constructed to facilitate teaching of these language structures within an intervention context.

Gateway© 40 maybe a logical next step for children using Gateway© 20 who now require a more complex vocabulary and/or who have made significant gains in their expressive language performance.

NOTE: The pageset includes a section with information, directions, links to tutorials that can be accessed from Dictionary>Settings>Help

Please note: Gateway page sets  can be tried for free for 30 days. After this demo period, you will need to activate the pageset.

Gateway© 20 targets preschool and school-aged children who are communicating using 1-2 word messages. They can recognize symbols of nouns, verbs and some adjectives and adverbs. These emerging communicators have the potential to improve their expressive language abilities.

Consistency of vocabulary organization supports the principles of language acquisition through motor planning. It contains MAIN and SCHOOL CORE pages that seamlessly link to relevant topical vocabulary without losing access to the high frequency core. Theme pages provide activities to promote communication in educational and social settings.

Steps Before Step Scanning 2.5

By Linda Burkhart
29-1-2021, 24 downloads
English
Only suited for Mind Express 5
SymbolStix    

This is a version of Steps Before Step Scanning built for Mind Express 5. It includes the ability to create individual student launchers in addition to using the ready-made activities.

This collection of resources 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


Video tutorials can be found at: https://lindaburkhart.com/directions-sbss-me-5/

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