Alpha Core is here

We’ve got a new text-based vocabulary in Grid! Alpha Core is designed to help people with changing physical abilities to communicate, such as those with MND.

You’ll find seven different keyboards to choose from – each offering quick access to prediction, built-in apps and a range of useful topics and phrases.

Built to meet your changing needs

Alpha Core will support you as your physical needs and access methods change over time. You’ll be able to swap to a new keyboard layout at anytime, without the worry of losing any phrases you’ve added or personalised.

You can read more about the different keyboards in our Alpha Core overview.

Easy to personalise topics

You’ll find a range of useful phrases, covering everyday topics and things that are relevant to people with physical difficulties – such as comfort and positioning, or diet and eating strategies.

This vocabulary is easy to personalise, so you can add your own words and phrases, and quickly remove those that aren’t relevant to you.

Based on clinical experience

Alpha Core was designed by SLP Amy Roman and is based on over 20 years of clinical experience working with people who have ALS, their families, caregivers and therapists.

Included in Grid 3 and Grid for iPad.
