WELCOME TO CORE CITY!
Get ready to build functional language with non-verbal, minimally verbal, echolalic, and verbal students with Autism, language delay, or special needs!
This activity set targets one Core vocabulary word which can be used alone or as part of a complete Core word curriculum.
Core vocabulary is a set of words that can be used in a variety of environments to communicate and respond quickly and effectively. Core vocabulary includes words such as greetings “hi” and “bye”, requests “want” and “more”, and responses “yes” and “no”. This program is designed to focus on one word at a time.
The Complete Core Word Activity Set includes the following components:
*Editable Parent Introduction Letter: Welcome families to Core City, a place where functional language is all around us.
*Map and Map Key: This is an overview of the components of a complete Core word activity set. The team of educators, related service providers and families will understand how we are going to build this city together!
*Visual Supports: Picture symbols of each word can be placed all around the environment. You will be provided with the visuals to use as door signs and lanyard necklaces.
*Modified Core Communication Board: This board is modified to include only the target word in the same location as a full complete core 30 board. This aids in the development of motor planning and provides the foundation for the use of an expanded communication board.
*Chatter Book: These interactive books explain the different situations that each word can be used throughout the day. Children will practice the word multiple times throughout the book by placing a picture symbol on each page.
*Sensory Search Activity: Expose students to the target word again and again with a variety of stimulating activities.
*Writing: Children will be exposed to the target word again and again while working on their writing skills using 19 pages of leveled writing activities.
*Data: Document student progress by using this thorough data sheet to monitor 8 levels of prompting.
*Home Carry-over Activities: Students will take a trip home in the CORE CAB! Parents will be provided with a variety of suggested activities to help work on each word in your own home.
*Suggested Adapted Literacy Component:
Work on the concept of the target word through repetitive exposure throughout a structured literacy activity using the book “First Day of School by Mercer Mayer”
This includes a Color-coded Communication Board and Visuals to Adapt Your Book.
(This is a companion to the book. You will need to purchase the book separately.)
