Overview - BM - VELOCITY


Lots to say, easy to use, and ready in minutes.

These easy-to-use programs offer a way to extend students' learning experiences. The graphics-based collection features Picture Communication Symbols (PCS). Most can be viewed and printed in several languages. Use these resources to create symbol-based computer activities, printable worksheets, schedules, and more. This Boardmaker collection features the most commonly used software among special educators and speech-language pathologists.

Velocity is an intuitive and comprehensive communication system designed for school-aged children. Its situation-based organization provides for fast and flexible conversations. Content is organized to take advantage of predicable things that are said in frequently occurring situations. The BoardWizard setup wizard and lesson plans allow even a novice support team to personalize Velocity for a student's use and provide instruction to that student the very first day.

Velocity's features include a BoardWizard that lets you customize Velocity in less than half an hour; situation-based talk for home, school and community; one-step access to off-situation talk and content that changes automatically to fit the season, holiday and even the user's birthday; new messages can be generated using the accessible word bank, onscreen keyboard, and word prediction; large buttons for direct access; preset scanning and auditory scanning; and lesson plans that teach Velocity content and address common communication goals. Velocity promotes independent interaction with peers and adults.

Velocity includes the kind of talk used by school-aged children at home, on the playground, in class, on the bus and on the ball field, and with all of their interaction partners including their friends, siblings, parents, teachers and classmates. Predictable phrases and phrase parts can be leveraged to maximize the amount of available content and the speed at which that content can be spoken by the AAC user. Important social situations such as getting in trouble, inviting a friend to play dodgeball, or introducing yourself to someone new are all easily managed conversations with Velocity.

System Requirements: Windows 2000 or later; Mac OS 10.2.8 or later
