Product Description
Do you struggle with planning functional communication therapy ?

Do you leave those sessions feeling frustrated and like it nothing is working?

Add structure, consistency and fun to your sessions by using Core Vocabulary. You’ll be amazed at how you can do more with less!

Core vocabulary is a small set of simple words, in any language, that are used frequently and across contexts (Cross, Baker, Klotz & Badman, 1997). These words make up 75-80% of the words we use every day. The Big Core Classroom Vocabulary Board is based on the DLM Core Vocabulary. This is a list of words that have been determined to be highly useful for communicating in both social and academic contexts.

* Uses DLM Core Vocabulary words which are evidence based.

request and command.

. What buyers are saying about the BIG Core Classroom Vocabulary Board:

"I'm so excited to have this product and start using it. I initially saw your post on Instagram. I saw your livestream on Facebook on how you implement it and shared it with my teachers. They are equally as excited. I especially love that you have an accompanying smaller board and the individual picture cards..."

"Thank you for putting this together! I have been wanting to implement Core vocabulary for some of my students but always feel intimidated when I go to make something! I can't wait to use this with my Pre-K students!"

Of course you want students to learn many other words, these are fringe vocabulary. But by focusing on these words you are teaching them a vocabulary that is used most often throughout the day and that they can use throughout their daily lives from classroom to playground to cafeteria to home.
