Research-based for success

The success of the Snap + Core First platform stems from the cohesive use of the Core Word framework, topics, quick phrases, behavior supports, word lists, and keyboards that let a user naturally engage with others. Core First, which is rooted in research by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, helps the communicator continuously build vocabulary and skills and takes advantage of motor learning by introducing new vocabulary systematically and purposefully, which allows users to move up or down and always know where to find vocabulary. It is built on three pillars for communication success: growth, engagement, and literacy.

A comprehensive ecosystem of support

To keep your focus on communication growth, Snap + Core First is backed by access to a truly unparalleled and free ecosystem of content and a library of resources. This includes Pathways for Core First, a free companion app that offers a guided experience to successfully implement Core First. Learn more at
