First Words Sterling Edition is a language and vocabulary tutorial program designed to provide training of early nouns for individuals with autism or language-learning, developmental, physical, visual or hearing disabilities. This program provides highly structured training of early developing nouns. The program trains 50 words in developmental order, but focuses on only five words at a time. Words are presented in isolation or with one other on the screen. The user can choose to work on a black or full-scene background. Optimized Intervention technology begins with a probe test to identify five words the student does not already know. During training, students are presented with two pictures and asked to identify one of them (e.g. "Find the cow.") The program monitors each student response and then automatically adjusts the training level(one to five) of each word. At the lower levels of training, the Blob reinforces correct answers with amusing antics. At the higher levels of training, a new character named Zot uses expanded language. Zot's speech uses the nouns from training with various determiners, plurals, and prepositions. The program also includes the Sterling Administration System, a set of tools for student management, data analysis, and report-writing.
