Welcome to Photosymbols - a very unique photo library. Photosymbols are designed to help make written information easier for people with a learning disability. In the UK we call this kind of information easy read.
The Photo Library
The photo library has over 4000 pictures covering a wide range of topics. Each image is designed to be clear and recognisable. High resolution pictures with transparent backgrounds make it is easy to combine photosymbols together to make your own custom images. The photo library is online and regularly updated with new pictures.
The main characters are acted by people with learning disabilities. Sometimes we work in the photo studio and sometimes we work on location - for example, in a hospital or police station. We work together with People First groups across the UK and are proud supporters of the self-advocacy movement.
If you would like to use Photosymbols for your easy read, you or your organisation can subscribe to one of our packages starting at £150 + vat for a year’s access. Membership allows you unlimited use in your own documents, websites and multimedia.
