Today Tobii Technology AB announced the launch of Sono Primo, a brand new vocabulary system for assistive and augmentative communication. Sono Primo offers situational communication with core vocabularies, social scripts, visual scenes and more for emergent communicators.
Path to future growth
Sono Primo is a language content product for emerging communicators that lays the foundation for success. It is available for both the static display S32 and for Tobii’s dynamic display devices and offers the right language and entertaining activities for a quick path to meaningful communication.
Sono Primo addresses a carefully selected set of communicative situations within a child’s world of experience. Each context offers a broad variety of pre-programmed content that makes it easy to create lively interactions through joined activities. The material allows exploring communicative roles, coach participation, as well as model language use in a playful and entertaining way.
Appropriate language levels
As suggested by leading AAC researchers, the different developmental stages of AAC users are matched through a variety of language representation:
Quick setup and customization
The Sono Primo provides great flexibility through its Control Center in Communicator. It allows for the quick pre-selection of activities, instant changes to the visual appearance, as well as easy to adjust settings. Further customizations, like changing vocabulary words and creating your own contexts from templates are really easy.
A natural voice
Sono Primo is based on the research of leading scientists in the field of AAC with young children (Janice Light, Kathryn Drager, David Beukelman, Mary Anne Romski, Rose Sevcik and others). One result of this research is the use of recorded children’s voices, as studies indicate a superior efficiency in learning over synthetic speech.
Sono Primo requires Tobii Communicator 4.5 and a MyTobii P10, Tobii C8 or Tobii C12. Tobii Sono Primo also runs with Tobii SymbolMate and a Tobii S32.
Sono Primo is free of extra cost when purchasing a Tobii communication device together with Tobii Communicator.
