Support and Downloads for PCS Symbols


Picture Communication Symbols (PCS) are a range of drawings created by Mayer-Johnson that represent words and or phrases. They are traditionally used in Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) and can be used with both High tech and low tech communication systems. There are many examples of people using symbols of all types around the world for a variety of reasons in addition to AAC. Symbols can make an environment more inclusive. We can label items or areas with symbols so that people using different languages can understand. Hospitals often label there signage with symbols to enable people to more easily navigate the hospital environment. Multilingual communication boards have also been created to support refugees coming into a new country so that they can get the help they require quickly.

If you want to use PCS Symbols with your own product or make printed copies of it, please see our Weblink Icon copyright policy.
