Everyday AAC

Super Core provides a full and consistent core vocabulary, that focuses on simplicity and includes the most functional and commonly used words.

It supports AAC use throughout the day by organising activity-specific vocabulary alongside the core, and encouraging communication within daily routines and play activities.

The grid set is easy to learn, for both the learner and the people supporting them – no matter their method of access.

Transition to Super Core with 12 and 20 cell Learning Grids

Super Core Learning Grids on iPads

The Super Core Learning Grids are designed for users who are at an earlier stage of language development, and may still be learning and practicing their access method. They include the daily and play activity vocabulary from Super Core, alongside a simplified core vocabulary.

12 Cells

The vocabulary in the 12 cell grids allows to AAC leaner to experiment with single words and build up to 2 or even 3 word utterances all based around daily and play activities.

20 Cells

As with the 12 cell grids, the 20 cell grids provides language for the same daily and play activities. They also support the AAC learner to begin building sentences, using the additional core and activity-specific vocabulary on each grid.
