TESTIMONIALS

  • My teachers can create materials so quickly. I used to grant them professional days to create materials, but with SymbolStix PRIME they make communication boards and activities in a snap. We can use those professional days for higher staff learning!
  • Our entire building loves SymbolStix PRIME. We received a grant last year for tablets and were thrilled to see that the activities and communication boards all speak!
  • The Board Wizard has saved my school year. I have doubled my caseload from last year and have more students who require symbol-support than I have ever had. I can create any activity from the templates in about a minute each. AutoGrid and the Board Wizard saved my school year.
  • Symbols for real news stories. Much appreciated. If my other children are talking about concerts and movies, my son with autism wants to say those things too!
