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.
