Printable PDFs of symbolised curricular resources for inclusive learning and teaching. Created and maintained by CALL Scotland, Symbols for All provides teaching resources in an accessible format for learners with additional support needs.

Using picture symbols as visual supports benefits learners of all abilities, from developing language and learning to understanding the environment. Their use can improve outcomes and raise the attainment of many learners, beyond those with identified additional support needs. The purpose of Symbols for All is to support the introduction of picture symbols and their use in everyday school activities by providing a core 'starter' set of resources.

There are symbols for the environment and the learner, which can be used as a whole school resource and for individual pupils.

Who, would use the resources. Why and how?

What are the curricular resources?

The curricular resources are printable PDFs created with Picture Communication Symbols (PCS) and organised around Scotland's 'Curriculum for Excellence' (CfE).

Whilst the resources have been categorised into curricular areas, developing participation and communication is a theme which underpins them all. The resources are in a variety of formats such as step-by-step instructions, core vocabulary communication boards and visual supports, plus many more.

What are the Bookbug resources?

The Bookbug resources are printable PDFs created with SymbolStix Symbols to accompany the Bookbug P1 Family bag and Explorer bag, gifted to every child in Scotland by Scottish Book Trust.

The resources encourage participation in Shared Reading at all levels and come in a variety of formats.

See examples of the Bookbug resources in use.
