InterAACt® Core Word Strategies

InterAACt encourages communication and language development by maintaining five consistent elements in all users (e.g., young child, teen, adult) across the framework spectrum. One of the five common elements includes the precision elements. Precision elements facilitate the development and use of higher level language skills, literacy development and novel message creation by taking advantage of frequently used single words (e.g., I, you, and, the) that allow the communicator to create unique messages. Single word vocabularies can include vocabulary lists and core words. InterAACt provides access to core word vocabularies through Gateway to Language and Learning on the Series 5 devices and through Xpress Core on Xpress devices.
