What are Symbols?
Symbols are images which are used to support text, making the meaning
clearer and easier to understand. They provide a visual
representation of a concept. Symbol Sets are comprehensive collections of images that give greater support than clip art or icon sets. Symbol Sets often follow a schematic structure, or set of design 'rules', that help the reader independently grow their own vocabulary.

The Widgit Symbol Set is used within all Widgit products. The simply-drawn, colourful symbols each illustrate a single concept in a clear and concise way. They cover a range of topics (including many curricular areas) wide enough to make them suitable for symbol users of all ages and abilities.

Symbol Design Service
If you have an idea for a new symbol let us know and we will add it to our list of symbol suggestions.
We are constantly drawing new symbols and these are periodically updated and freely available for our software from Symbol Updates
Please be aware that we receive many requests and whilst we do our best to address peoples request, it may be some time before we are able to draw them all. This is a free service.
If you require the symbol more urgently, we can offer a priority drawing service for a small fee.
