About Smarty Symbols

Smarty Symbols is a company dedicated to supporting emerging Communicators. We do this through: 

A library of 30,000 modern, diverse and inclusive icons designed to support learning and communication. The image library was developed by Barbara Fernandes, a speech-language-pathologist with the goal to bring modern and attractive visuals to special education. 

Smarty Symbols innovated the special education communication space by introducing the concept of Character of Choice. Character of choice gives children and adults the freedom to communicate with a character that best represent them.
