A universal solution for every student
Grid 3 has many uses in school, helping language development from the earliest interaction through all levels of AAC to full control of a computer with alternative access methods.
The Education Licence
The Grid 3 Education Licence is available for schools, colleges and universities that require 20 or more Grid 3 licences on their network. Each licence costs £180.
How it works
There is a minimum purchase of 20 licenses. After that you have the flexibility to add on licences as and when you need.
The licence operates a token leasing system – meaning you can install Grid 3 on as many devices as you’d like, and have your chosen number of licences running at one time.
Once you shut down Grid 3, the licence is released and ready to be used again by another student. Providing you are online, your licence can be used anywhere – not just limited to the school site.
Works with any Windows computer, tablet or AAC device. Available in the UK and Ireland.
Grid 3 for everyone
Grid 3 comes with resources (grid sets) and features designed for every student, regardless of age or ability. Grid sets are easy to adapt to the needs of each individual student, and you’ll also find that you can quickly create your own content to fit around your teaching and learning needs.
Remember that every grid set you create will work with every type of access, including: switch, touch and eye gaze.
PCS symbols and Acapela children’s voices can be added to your purchase to tailor Grid 3 to your students.
Develop language skills
Grid 3 supports total communication across the classroom and facilitates using AAC in every lesson. There are symbolised AAC resources for all levels of literacy and access. Grid 3 also provides powerful tools for efficient text-based communication for literate users. For example, Grid 3 comes with:
- Interactive Learning for early cause and effect activities
- First Words for learning and speaking your first words
- Symbol Talker grid sets for topic-based AAC
- Vocab for Life for symbolised category and context-specific vocabulary designed for older students
- WordPower 100 for efficient symbol-based communication with core vocabulary and smart grammar
- Fast Talker 3 for fast and efficient text-based communication with accessible apps
