Additional information:

Blissymbolics is a means of communication for those who are unable to speak. It uses symbols which can be displayed on a communication chart or in a communication book. Blissymbolics can be used by young children as a basic communication system and for language development, yet it is equally suitable as a sophisticated communication medium for adults with speech impairments. Symbols on charts are readily understandable to unfamiliar listeners as text always accompanies the symbols.
