Widgit Symbols are used globally to support people and help them realise their full potential, no matter what their age, ability, or background.
The ever expanding Widgit Symbol Set has been developed over the past 35 years and now contains more than 18,000 symbols, which cover an English vocabulary of over 45,000 words.
Health and education professionals around the world use Widgit Software and symbols with learners of all ages and abilities to support language development, communication, literacy, and learning.
Using a range of symbol resources and strategies can give people more freedom. By making small changes to encourage independence, a large impact can be made on people’s self-esteem and confidence.
Where people’s physical abilities are restricted, or they cannot speak, symbols can be used to help them to communicate their needs and wants, enabling them to make choices. Symbols empower them to be able to share their thoughts and ideas in ways that others can more easily understand.
We believe that no matter what your level of language or reading, everybody should have fair and equal access to information.
