Widgit Symbol Update 2021
More Inclusive, More Relevant, More Symbols
What do users think of the 2021 Symbol Update?
To help ensure that the new and revised symbols are fit for purpose, we conducted user reviews with practitioners who regularly create and use symbolised materials with learners. Here are just a few of the comments we received:
"The changes are subtle enough that students who use Widgit symbols and are familiar with them won't be put out by seeing new or slightly updated versions."
Carley McAdam (Special Ed Teacher and City Kicks Author)
"The new symbols look great. I am always trying to ensure the students get meaning instantly from the symbols. These changes will help that further and also they seem much more updated and modern."
Steph Reed (Autism Spectrum Teacher)
"I can’t wait to download the updated version! The varied skin tone tool is highly needed and necessary. Great work Widgit, well done!!"
Sammie Colmer (Special Needs Teacher)
"Better, definitely better. Clearer, more realistic and more up to date."
Justin Drew (Sandwell SLT)
"They are good, I like them. They are nice and clear."
Emma Covington (AAC Specialist)
