Gateway 120 Developing Language pageset is designed for children acquiring language following the typical sequence of language development. It provides a powerful solution for children learning to create simple to complex sentences, communicate in a range of communicative contexts, etc.
HOME and SCHOOL CORE pages seamlessly link to relevant topical vocabulary without losing access to the high-frequency core. In addition to its core words, the HOME page of Gateway 120 DL has folders for key categories such as Question Starters, People, Pronouns, Verbs, Little Words, Describe, Things, and Places. These same folders are consistent for the School Core. Some folders change depending upon whether one is in the HOME Core or within School Environments.
Gateway 120 Advanced Communicator pageset is designed for individuals with complex expressive language skills, who could benefit from an efficient and powerful core word vocabulary enabling complex message generation. It is a logical next step for children using the Developing Language Vocabulary Level, who now require a more mature vocabulary and greater efficiency in message generation to address their daily communication needs.
This level would essentially replicate the developing language content for the Core pages with a few exceptions for verbs and descriptive words. The dynamic morphology would be added for the verbs – adding –ing, want = to +verb, and past following yesterday, last, etc. and for pronouns such as “with, by, etc” that convert to object pronouns.
The COMMUNITY Core page enables users to access topical community and school vocabulary and specific Mind Express features (e.g., Calculator, email, calendar, text…) that support language and literacy development.
