It's permanent home is now at Foster Village. One wall features picture symbols arranged in the form of an Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) board. These symbols correspond to core words and birdhouse "fringe" vocabulary. Core words account for 75-80% of the words we say every day while fringe vocabulary consists of low frequency words related to the specific environment.
