SymbolSend is a disability friendly messaging app that gives nonverbal individuals the ability to communicate using visual aids.

The app covers the vocabulary requirements of all ages, encouraging the development of communication skills for people with Autism Spectrum Condition, speech delay, or hearing impairment. The app is suitable for families, educational settings or medical and healthcare professionals.

How SymbolSend works


Visual symbols are entered in
sequence to create a phrase or
sentence, which can then be sent
to other SymbolSend users.


Sentences can be received as symbols or in text format,
so they can be read like any other message.


Replies can be sent in symbols,
so nonverbal users can communicate with one another, or in text, which is
then translated into visual symbols.

Using SymbolSend helped me find a way to communicate with my son easily. One thing I really like is that you can choose to be a visual or text user. The app translates the text to visual for you, and allows each individual to get the information in the format that best suits them.
