About Widgit

Widgit Symbols are used worldwide to support people and help them realise their full potential, no matter what their age, ability or background. A reading or language difficulty can prevent children from accessing learning. It can make reading text in maths, science and other curriculum subjects challenging, and it can be hard for teachers to meet the needs of these children. Widgit Symbols support teaching and learning to ensure that children can access and understand texts within lessons

The Endeavor Academy

To aid with visual support the Endeavour Academy use Widgit Symbols throughout the school and residential home with all students. They use Widgit Symbols for labelling, signage, now and next boards, visual timetables, social stories, PECS books, routines, transitions. They also have Widgit Symbols on their website to reinforce the symbols to parents, carers and other visitors to their website.See how Endeavour Academy are using Widgit to support communication, education and understanding in the video below:

“I can’t really quantify the impact of Widgit within the school without saying it’s just amazing!

Without having access to the symbols and the programs we would not be able to function as a school. These children would not be able to go through the day as they do independently.”
