Learning Objective

Emergent communicators will learn to use basic core words to begin communicating. Boards expand from 4 core words per page to 32.


Not enough time to create core word picture communication boards for all of your different AAC users? Support emerging communicators with these core vocabulary based communication boards of different sizes and complexity. This is a set of core vocabulary based communication board displays for beginning AAC communicators

  • 8, 15, 20, 28, and core 30 symbols, and a generic board for reading activities.

  • Set of 4-location boards on 9 pages that create a mini-core book of 36 core words
  • with larger and fewer symbols per display for students who need a smaller visual array or larger target area.

  • Set of 6-location boards on 6 pages that also create a mini-book of 36 core words

Give your AAC users a firm foundation in core words as you build a more robust AAC system.

The packet contains some explanation of core vocabulary, why we use it, how to foster its use in classrooms, a list of early core words and core word combinations.

Boards are in color, and use Symbol Stix from News2You and Smarty Symbols

Boards are not color coded per Fitzgerald key or Goosens et al, since not everyone uses the same coding system. (explanation included)

You can easily add color cues to the borders.
