The Widgit Literacy Symbols (WLS) set consists of over 8,000 symbols
covering a vocabulary of over 24,000 words. Widgit Literacy Symbols have been
developed to support literacy and to help make information accessible to those
struggling with traditional orthography. The simplicity of the line drawings
makes them ideal for reinforcing the meaning of text.
Designed to improve access to the curriculum, Widgit Literacy Symbols cover
a range of terms common in elementary and secondary education. This allows students
who struggle with language to more fully engage in the variety of learning opportunities
that are present in the classroom. The full library of symbols is available
in both color and black and white. WLS are a perfect companion to Picture Communication
Symbols (PCS) to boost literacy and curricular supports.
