Description:

“Core First is a pageset that is centered on Tobii Dynavox’s systematic delivery of the Core Word framework, Topics, QuickFires, Behavior Supports, Word Lists, and Keyboards. Rooted in research by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Core First helps the communicator continuously build vocabulary and skills and takes advantage of motor learning by introducing new vocabulary systematically and purposefully.
