5 Reasons Smarty Symbols is a Must Have for School SLPs

As school based SLPs, we know that our students highly benefit from visual aids. That increases ten fold if you work with individuals with autism spectrum disorder or English language learners. Subscriptions to well-known image libraries can be pricey and unreachable. Also, if you enjoy making products on Teachers Pay Teachers, you are prohibited by copyright of selling these items. That is why I LOVE Smarty Symbols.

1) Smarty Symbols is a wonderful tool that I use every single day. I can’t say that for most of my therapy tools. You have access to over 20000 images and more are being added daily. These images are clear, detailed, and print off wonderfully.
2) In addition to their vast library of images, I must add that their website is beyond easy to navigate. Just search the word and a variety of images appear. You won't ever spend too much time searching for just the right image.
3) You can search and create your own pages off of their templates that are already created. Need a 1st grade MLU activity? Search it easily by clicking on 1st grade, speech therapy. It is so simple and quick…completely necessary with our busy schedules.
4) With the personal subscription, it is perfect for developing low tech AAC for students that need to start with PECS or a core board. I can't tell you how many times I have made a PECS book, a core board, or visuals for paraprofessionals to put on a lanyard.
5) With the commercial license, you can create your own therapy materials and then turn around and sell them on TpT! A no-brainer if you’re already creating or making your own materials.

Check out these products that I have made with Smarty Symbols images…and these are just a few!

  1. I work with the intellectually disabled moderate population as well as a few classrooms for students with autism in an elementary school. Smarty symbols would be perfect for helping me create social stories, visual schedules, and behavior management charts for these students!

  2. I would use them to make visual schedules or visuals for learning different concepts. Exciting giveaway! jennatews@gmail.com

  3. I work with babies to adults in outpatient therapy. I believe visual supports can help everyone to understand and succeed. I even use them for my family :) I use symbols for PECS books, picture communication, visual schedules and book companions. I'd love to give Smarty Symbols a try. Thanks!

  4. This would be so useful! What SLP doesn't love and need visuals?! Hoping I win this!!

  5. I work with the preschool population in a school setting and use picture icons for a variety of purposes! (picture schedules, social stories, core boards, and speech/language activities)

  6. Love this!! I could use this for most of my caseload at AZACS and clinic

  7. I would love to have this resource to use to make more resources for my speech students such as social stories, visuals, homework. I work with preschool through 3rd graders on fluency, articulation, language skills. stampngrL2@gmail.com
