Unity

The Unity language system is the original core word system that provides maximum flexibility, as well as communication and educational supports. It is also the foundation of the LAMP Words for Life and CoreScanner language systems.

The Unity language system is the most established AAC language system in the industry, is used by tens of thousands of people using AAC and has been translated into more than a dozen languages.

LAMP Words for Life

Designed for people with autism learning to communicate with AAC, the LAMP Words for Life language system is a full language program that combines the power of PRC’s Unity language system with Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP) principles and strategies.

LAMP Words for Life is designed for people with autism using AAC communication devices and is based on the LAMP methodology

LAMP Words for Life – Spanish/English

LAMP Words for Life – Spanish/English builds on the LAMP methodology of one consistent and unique motor plan for each word in the LAMP Words for Life language system – but for a bilingual environment.

CoreScanner

The CoreScanner language system from PRC is one that directly addresses the unique needs of children who use switches to communicate and access language. Based on the same principles of the Unity and LAMP language approaches, CoreScanner offers a road map that starts out at a single word and gradually adds language without ever changing the motor plan.

Essence

A powerful, yet simple, spelling-based program designed for literate individuals such as adults with ALS. Optimized for use with NuEye® (eye gaze technology) and NuPoint® (head mouse technology), the Essence language system combines spelling with word prediction and abbreviation expansion for expressing novel thoughts.
