Say It With Symbols!

Good Day RettGirls!

This week at we are featuring the website Say it With Symbols from the folks at

You can find this incredible resource in our Websites and School Stuff!

This site actually came to our attention from a father of a nonverbal child who is currently working on branching out to help all nonverbal people - children and adults.

Say it with Symbols is a website full of products, symbols, tips and free stuff for nonverbal communicators.

I spent hours looking through everything they have and I don't think I touched on half of it.

We are pretty sure you can find just about anything here to help your girl express herself. I know many of you MORE CRAFTIER THAN I parents and caregivers spend hours trying to come up with books, gadgets and pages to help your girls at home, in the classroom and on the go. I am serious when I say, "It's all here. Right at your fingertips!"


From the company website:

Communicating and Caring Using Picture Symbols:
Imagine not being able to ask for a tissue or say "I need you." For thousands of children and adults who struggle with speech, this is their daily reality. We can help them.

Say it with Symbols! is the first stop resource for families, caregivers and educators looking for affordable, easy-to-use augmentative communication aids that help people with speech disorders actively participate in daily living by communicating with pictures and symbols.

Browse our site to find portable
augmentative communication aids, Boardmaker symbol software, pre-made communication books and more that help children and adults express their needs and wants at home, in the classroom, out in the community and in healthcare/rehab settings. Look for the Parent-Inspired Product symbol throughout our site to identify products designed and used by families and caregivers. Communicating is caring.

A resource for families, special education teachers, speech and language pathologists, AAC and assistive technology specialists, nurses and rehab specialists who use communication aids, visual supports, Mayer-Johnson Boardmaker™ Picture Communication Symbols, and PECS with children and adults with communication disorders resulting from autism spectrum disorders, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, Rett Syndrome, dyspraxia, apraxia, aphasia, Alzheimer's, dementia, stroke and traumatic brain injury
