Featured Website of the Month (April) - Visual Supports + Freebie & Giveaway!!!


*This blog post contains affiliate links.


This month's featured website is especially for all my special education and speech teacher friends. This website is full of clipart and symbols for teaching students who can benefit from extra visual supports. There are over 21,000 images created by special educators available to choose from. These are great for making worksheets, visual schedules, posters and more. ​ The founder of this website, Barbara Fernandes, is a a licensed speech-language pathologist. She saw a need for quality images to support visual learners and Smarty Symbols was born. Smarty Symbols is a subscription-based website with membership options for personal and commercial use. I love how you can search for images based on speech sounds in the initial, medial, and final positions or search by keyword or category. You can search by whole word or a phrase that includes a specific keyword. There are lots of options! ​ Watch the short video below for a quick overview of the site as Barbara walks you through how to use the different features of the website.


I wanted to create a freebie for all of you so you can get an idea of what the images are like so I made these "Wh" questions bookmarks using Smarty Symbols! Barbara has also generously offered a one-year subscription for a personal use membership (or you can opt to have a one month commercial use license) for me to give away to one of my readers! Enter the giveaway below.
