Product Overview

Widgit have finished a two year long research project looking at how symbols can be made more appropriate for people with a visual impairment. The results from this are 2,400 modified symbols, based on the Widgit Literacy Symbols, and 3 extensive packs of resources.

Key design modifications

The key factors considered when modifying existing symbols were:

  • line thickness
  • the clutter of a symbol
  • the proximity of multiple images within a symbol
  • the colour contrast and use of colour to contextualise the symbol
  • visual perception of an image and the 'readability' of the symbol

Resources provided with the symbols

There are 3 packs of resources:

Visual Skills

Numeracy Skills

Speech and Language/ Literacy Skills

These resources have been designed for children with a visual impairment. They will also benefit children in the Foundation stage, children at KS1 and children with speech and language or learning difficulties. These resources are not presented in any sequential order of difficulty. They have been designed to provide resources for classroom or assessment use and equally they can be modified and used as a template for your own ideas!

The resources have been designed to be printed in colour but have been rigorously tested when printed in black and white to ensure that there is good colour contrast in grey scale.

The tasks give an opportunity to assess and develop the following areas:

  • Visual perception skills
  • Visual discrimination skills
  • Orientation
  • Colour perception
  • Cognition
  • Speech and language skills
  • Literacy skills
