    Has anyone ever used these symbosl? Are they free? I couldn't tell from the site. I guess I should just give them my contact information and see, but wanted to know if anyone else had used them first. :)

    It looks like it is free as long as it is non-commercial. I guess if it's not they will send you an email.

    They are free as long as you promise not to use them for profit.

    They are cool symbols, but honestly a bit complicated to me. Some of my kids would understand these, but not all of my kids would.

    There is a pretty extensive library if you download the file -- but unfortunately the "school" section is limited.

    Great option for a free download -- and great for those who need something a bit more than MJ Boardmaker symbols.

    Thanks for the info. I actually did end up submitting my contact info and it told me I could dowload right away. Problem is, it is a zipped file. I don't have winzip on this computer. Guess I'll have to wait until I get back home to my computer.

    That is neat. I have older kids who are very visual but read and speak at a decent level so I don't really need Boardmaker. I do like to use pictures for support but Boardmaker often seems to low for them. I am going to check this out right now.

    These symbols would definitely fit that category! "Higher than Boardmaker" -- and also visual supports for texts, worksheets, etc.

    They DO look much more "grown up" in my opinion.

    My only problem is that my kids wouldn't understand some of them - they are a little more detailed (but this is good for some!)
