  1. Visual schedule – Create a Schedule and print it out if you want. We don’t print as we use iphone version we can carry around. We created several daily schedules such as ‘Morning routine’, ‘Evening Walk’ etc..
  2. Choice Boards – Ths can be used to create category pages.  I like asking my kid what color is the car and what type of car. We have these created a choice boards so he can answer them without carrying his SGD around.
Wish List
  • With 10000 symbols it is huge and even with search it is difficult. it is nice to have them filter by category on search page.
IEP Goals/Skills:  Visual Supports
Overall Impression
  • With over 10,000 icons, you have the most comprehensive list of icons for every scenario you can think of.  The user interface is easy to use. If the icon is not present,  (for example, I needed an ethnic food icon that SymbolStix didn’t had)  and I was able to  search google and add it to the schedule.
  • The other major feature I like is Speech Generation. I hate recording for each picture. I just want to type and let the system read it.  This app will do that with a text to voice software used for developing this product.
  • Overall Great product

    This is one of my favorite apps. It’s limited only by your imagination .Developers listened and provided symbols plus easy access to google images. A must have app.

    Refered by TechInSpecialEd – This app looks like the answer to creating both visual schedules and social stories. As an SLP, I’d love to have it on our school pilot program iPads!
