AlphaCore TM is a core vocabulary board. It contains the most frequently used words in the English language, arranged in alphabetical order. Using a core vocabulary board can make communication significantly faster.
POSTER: A poster printed on thick, high quality paper stock. Ships rolled in a tube.
LAMINATED: A poster laminated in durable, matte non-reflective lamination.
MOUNTED: A paper poster mounted onto a rigid plastic board.
3 SIZES (for use with a laser):
MEDIUM: 11 x 17 inches
LARGE: 18 x 24 inches
XL: 24 x 36 inches
The size of the board and targets can make a HUGE difference in terms of a user's success. Some people need a larger board with larger targets (cells), while others do better with smaller targets. If you aren't sure which size would be best, we recommend purchasing a bundle. Bundles contain all three sizes at a reduced price. Available in poster, laminated and mounted board formats.
- XL Posters: Shipped rolled in a tube.
- XL Laminated Posters/Boards: Shipped in a large box. (Shipping will be significantly higher.)
If shipping costs are an issue, one option is to purchase the XL poster and have it laminated locally (with matte laminate).
