Gompers Rocks Core Words

Gompers Private School Assistive Technology (AT) team kicked off the school year with a core word of the week program called: Gompers Rocks Core. Core words are the 50-400 words that make up most of what we say in typical conversation and writing. By giving emergent speakers and AAC learners quick access to these core words, Gompers is providing them with a powerful tool to communicate what they want to say rather than relying on others to infer what they want to say.

This is a site-wide, collaborative approach to increase exposure to each word across various settings and in natural contexts, which aligns with natural language development.
