SCORE

SCORE is a symbol based vocabulary that grows in line with the language development of the user, so you can start working with it from an early age. Thanks to a fixed core vocabulary and a fringe vocabulary that can be expanded, SCORE can be tailored to your needs. This symbol based vocabulary has been developed in collaboration with the University of Cologne and works in Mind Express 4.

University research has shown that we use approximately 200 core words daily. These make up 80 % of our spoken language. In SCORE, the core vocabulary is always visible and clear. The core words are conveniently organized around the customisable and expandable fringe vocabulary. The communication boards offer core words as a basis, as well as a fringe vocabulary for expansion. The intention is that you keep building up your sentences from these core words. The fringe vocabulary evolves with the user. Although the board expands, the structure, color code and position are preserved. Everything you’ve learned is exactly where you expect it to be. This is extremely useful when modeling.

Digital and paper versions

This allows you to use SCORE in any place at any time.

SCORE for switches and eye-tracking

The 2-steps version of SCORE has been developed to make the SCORE-vocabulary more accessible for people with motoric, cognitive and/or visual challenges. The organisation of the vocabulary has been established by the language therapists at Heder. Every page contains no more than 30 symbols. This enables users of switches and/or eye gaze to access the vocabulary.

Paper-based SCORE

Besides the digital version, SCORE also has a paper-based version. The paper version is perfect for beginning users of SCORE. It lowers boundaries and also engages modelisation during play and therapy. You can use them as placemats, stick them on a tabletop, take them to the swimming pool laminated… Language is everywhere! The paper-based SCORE version contains:

  • A4 communication grid with 48 cells (40 keywords).
  • A3 communication grid with 140 cells (40 keywords).
  • A3 communication grid with 140 cells (108 keywords).
  • Communication binder is organised by a static frame of 200 core vocabulary that surrounds a dynamic part of the fringe vocabulary.

The A3 and A4 grids can be downloaded on the Mind Express website. This way you can adapt the grids to the needs of individual users or adapt the fringe vocabulary.

  • A0 with 140 symbols (like the A3 grid)
  • A0 with 336 symbols (like the binder)
  • A1 with 140 symbols (like the A3 grid)
  • A1 with 336 symbols (like the binder)

 

At school, during play- or bathtime?

Apart from the digital version in Mind Express, there is also a hard copy version of SCORE (paper-based version). This allows you to use SCORE in any place at any time. The SCORE vocabulary is a paid page set, but there is a free 30 day trial period.
