Symbols are a lifeline for individuals with communication disabilities, enabling unique learners to understand the world around them and to express their thoughts and needs. SymbolStix PRIME, the evidence‑based symbol communication tool, provides that lifeline, ensuring everyone has access to learning, language and self‑expression.
History’s most dependable communication tools
SymbolStix PRIME, the most complete and current symbol set available, provides busy teachers with the tools to simultaneously create and deliver quick print and interactive communication and learning materials in the format that best meets their particular classroom needs. Teachers can also embrace their multicultural classrooms through the ability to easily change skin tones and generate symbols and text in English, Spanish and 10 other languages.
Meaningful, relevant access to learning—and the world
Learning through effective communication is at the heart of n2y’s mission, and it’s what drove the development of the 60,000+ dynamic, engaging and personally relevant education symbols in the SymbolStix PRIME database. This unparalleled set of visual support symbols provides the language, learning and teaching tools for helping individuals with communication challenges to develop knowledge, build skills and connect with the world.
