Full Product Description
Path to future growth
Sono Primo allows young users to set off on the path to success from the very beginning of an AAC intervention. Sono Primo offers the right language and entertaining activities for emerging communicators in both cases, on static and dynamic display solutions.
Tobii Sono Primo is a comprehensive and motivational content package for emerging communicators; it lays the foundation for success – right from the very start. 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 typical world of experience. Within each context, there is a broad variety of pre-programmed content that allows for a quick start towards meaningful communication. The rich material makes it easy to create lively interactions through joined activities and allows for a playful approach to exploring communicative roles, coach participation and model language use.
Appropriate language levels
Leading research on AAC and best practice experiences suggests that the different developmental stages of AAC users should be matched by multiple language representation and interaction forms*. Sono Primo for Communicator offers this through:
- Pages of core vocabulary and situational words represented as single symbols
- Social scripts with different levels of complexity
- Visual scenes providing full context information
- Hybrid scenes that build connections between context and single icons
- Storybooks related to the situations
- Fun activities for exploring vocabulary

Quick setup and customization
A situational communication approach requires a highly flexible communication aid. With Sono Primo for Communicator, this is provided through the new Sono Primo Control Centre. The control centre allows swift pre-selection of activities, quick changes to the visual appearance or switching to message collection mode. Further customization is easy and does not require any programming skills. Sono Primo allows for quick changes of words and even the creation of template-based contexts.
A natural voice
One important Sono Primo feature is the use of recorded children’s voices. Studies show that the needs of emerging AAC users differ from many of the ideas that verbal adults have and that the natural voice of a child offers superior learning efficiency over synthetic speech. Experience this efficiency and lead your users into successful communication!
Compatible with: Windows: XP / Vista / 7
