Introducing Grid

Our Grid software is at the heart of our communication aids. Communicate with symbols and text, access emails and text messages, control your computer and much more.

Create your own grids or use the ready made grid sets included in the software. These range from early symbol communication to more complex language solutions. Everything is designed to be easily customised to fit your needs.

Symbol Communication

Symbol based communication can be as simple as ‘yes’ or ‘no’, or used to create complete sentences.

Symbols are often paired with words to help build literacy. There is a pathway of symbol communication resources available in Grid – from early AAC, through to moving on to literacy.
