Wordpower For The Grid



Add to Wishlist
Language studies have shown that we reuse a small number of words very often when we speak, often referred to as our "core vocabulary". WordPower places this core vocabulary on the main grid, so these words are readily available in a single selection. To find words that are not included in the core vocabulary, you can type (with prediction) or go to one of the vocabulary pages, which are arranged by topic.

The Grid 2 versions of WordPower use features such as verb morphology and spelling support.

WordPower is a unique vocabulary design designed by Nancy Inman, M.A.T.,CCC-SLP, so that users can produce generative language with the least amount of keystrokes.

Created by Nancy Inman, M.A.T.,CCC-SLP, WordPower is a communication application based on logical vocabulary categories. WordPower is both powerful and flexible enough for any age and for any literacy level. WordPower is dedicated to improving communication skills for individuals with severe expressive speech and language disabilities. WordPower combines the features of core vocabulary, spelling and word prediction. The system takes advantage of the fact that a core of just 100 words accounts for approximately 50 percent of words spoken. The core words of WordPower are categorized, color-coded and alphabetized for easy access. WordPower uses these 100+ words in conjunction with spelling and word prediction. Picture WordPower offers similar communication power with graphics and text support.
You can use either PCS or WLS symbols.

Stage development

WordPower provides fast communication for people with some literacy skills. There are 4 introductory stages, beginning with a simple version of WordPower. More cells with more features and additional vocabulary are introduced at each stage. WordPower is available with or without a keyboard on the start grid and is supplied with a guide that describes each stage as you go. It also includes information on adjusting the user settings, and using the special feature grids. 

Switch access

Alternate versions of WordPower are included for switch users.  These have some re-arrangements to increase the efficiency of scanning the grids and keyboards, and also use block-scanning to make cell selection easier.

The Grid 2 version of WordPower was created by Gillian Hazell.


Download your demonstration copy of the grid set from Online Grids.  You must have The Grid 2 installed to use the grid set.
