I Want:

Set up your 'MyCatalog' .  You have the "sentence starter" i.e. I want, I need will stay fixed to the sentence strip, and the user will just need to tap or swipe at a card to send it to the sentence strip.  i.e. to say "I want + water", the user will only have touch the "water" symbol- the "I want" symbol remains on the strip in this mode.  If you want to change the sentence starter, tap the the dimmed button to the left of the strip, with 3 grey lines to change to another sentence starter you had created in the past.
