Review:

"[This book] gives a rationale for using different symbol systems and a valuable guide to their use in practice. Many a teacher and parent will attest to the extraordinary liberation a symbol system can effect and this book will help others enormously in their use of these."
review of the first edition
-"The Times Educational Supplement

About the Author:

Tina Detheridge and Mike Detheridge are both educators and developers of software for people with learning difficulties and pioneers of techniques for the use of symbols to support the development of literacy and self expression for people who do not use text.
