Early Emerging Rules: Negation is a language tutorial and vocabulary enhancement program designed to train early grammatical constructions and facilitate the transition from single words to word combinations for individuals with developmental, visual, physical or language learning disabilities. The program uses speech, pictures, and animated characters and is intended as a follow-up to the vocabulary training provided by First Words, First Words II, and First Verbs (see entries). The six instructional levels include a game, four levels of training, and a test option. Students are presented pictures and asked to select the picture which represents the construction being trained. Various amounts of instruction, cuing, and feedback are provided on each training level. The program trains the determiner "no". For students with physical disabilities, alternative access may be gained through a TouchWindow (see separate entry). COMPATIBILITY: For use with Macintosh and IBM and compatible computers.
