Who is Snap + Core First for?

Snap + Core First is ideal for individuals with Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and intellectual disabilities.

Research-based for success

The success of the Snap + Core First platform stems from the cohesive use of the Core Word framework, topics, quick phrases, behavior supports, word lists, and keyboards that let a user naturally engage with others. Core First, which is rooted in research by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, helps the communicator continuously build vocabulary and skills and takes advantage of motor learning by introducing new vocabulary systematically and purposefully, which allows users to move up or down and always know where to find vocabulary. It is built on three pillars for communication success: growth, engagement, and literacy.

Designed for easy customization and consistency

Snap + Core First has a user interface that allows for easy editing and grid size changes, common functions for dragging and dropping, quicker actions for linking pages, and a new Search tool for finding words quickly. A wide variety of Acapela voices are also available as free downloads in the paid version of the app.
