NovaChat and TouchChat are essentially the same language systems but on different platforms. However, there are a few differences that can make one system a better feature match for a child. Join this class to take a look at these systems side by side. If you already know one of these, you will be reassured that the other is not that different. See how basic programming differs and which access features can be utilized on each device.

  1. Participates will identify three key differences between NovaChat and TouchChat
  2. Participants will see the differences between accessing each system, access features and keyguard differences.
  3. Participants will learn the differences in programming a button on each system.
