Adult Picture Symbols
Adults Use Appropriate Pictures and Symbols for Communication Aids and AAC devices
Adult-appropriate images and picture symbols give you the flexibility to make truly customized, motivating communication aids for users with aphasia, brain injury, dementia, autism and other cognitive disabilities. But many of the symbol sets commonly available were created to be used with children with special needs include vocabulary made for school-aged children.
Here's a selection of picture symbol and images that address the activities and needs appropriate for adults and seniors and are not patronizing. Use these pictures to create social stories, visual schedules for people with memory challenges, choice boards for individuals with aphasia from stroke and other communication books appropriate for adults. Computer access may be required to use these pictures.
