The ever-expanding Widgit Symbol Set has been developed over the past 25 years in partnership with communication and language experts and now contains more than 10,000 symbols, which cover a vocabulary of over 40,000 words.
The Widgit Symbol Set is designed specifically to support independence in reading, writing and communication. The simply drawn, colourful symbols each illustrate a single concept, in a clear and concise way, and cover a range of topics making them suitable for all ages and abilities.
The Widgit Symbols follow a schematic structure, meaning that there are ‘rules’ for the way in which they are formed.
Widgit Symbols are used all over the world, supporting 17 languages and giving readers of all literacy levels greater access to information and increasing communication.
