If you have someone in your life that struggles to communicate it is likely to bring stress and anxiety to the whole family. Visual symbols can help bring calm by allowing you to communicate with one another.
Don't know where to start?
If you're new to using visuals and don't know where to start then the Visual Timetable for Home is a great starter pack, with 35 symbols based around home life.

A BIT ABOUT US
Create Visual Aids was founded by a teacher with experience of working in both mainstream and special education. It is born out of the recognition that every individual is different and therefore has different needs. By offering a personalised service we are able to make products that are exactly right for each individual. We are lucky to have permission to use fantastic Widgit(T) Symbols in our products. Your child may recognise these since they are widely used in schools.
Create Visual Aids are very proud to say that we donate 10% of all profits from this website to the National Autistic Society.
All of our products are sold under licence from Widgit Symbols (C) Widgit Software 2002 - 2019 www.widgit.com
At Create Visual Aids we offer personalised products so that you end up with the exact set of symbols that is right for the user. You can choose the colours of the board and symbols, the skin colour of anyone in the symbols, plus of course you get to choose the actual symbols yourself.
Easy to use
Our high quality resources are either printed onto sturdy card, or are laminated using matt laminate to reduce glare for the user. The addition of velcro then allows you to move the symbols around as you please, providing an intuitive learning resource suitable for both adults and children.
what our customers say
These cards are very well made, simple and clear. I've tried to make some myself in the past and it cost a lot more that these did! The velcro is stuck on really well and doesn't come off. I'd highly recommend.
I have just received the visual timetable. The cards and the two boards look fantastic, of a good size, very sturdy, and very well made. I have everything I want at a more than acceptable price. Very pleased with my purchase.
This timetable was for a child in my nursery class who is on the autistic spectrum. I was so impressed how the timetable could be tailored to his needs and amended if necessary. We use this both in school and home and he likes it too!
