Visual Supports & More

One click downloads any support as a PDF so you can print it, email it, or put it on a zip drive.
Five Star Support
We promise to always offer quick, friendly support for any issue you may encounter. We answer every email and call personally.
An entire library at your fingertips
We’re building the premiere community of parents and professionals who are excited about creating amazing visual supports.
You’re In Control
By default, all your supports are private. It’s up to you to decide which ones you want to share with the world.
Make it Your Own
You can easily print or view a shared support as-is, or with one click create a copy that’s all your own to customize for your unique needs.
Rate supports, offer comments and feedback, and copy to improve. We give the entire community a voice.
Symbly gives you the unique ability to share with anyone, even if they’re not a Symbly user. We won’t make them sign up just to view or print your supports. Share your customized supports with your student’s family just by sending a link.
Share with Teams
Symbly lets you collaborate with groups of other users to form teams. Each team also gets a special link that you can share with anyone (even people without Symbly subscriptions) to let them view and print your team’s supports. Perfect for sharing supports with parents, conference or presentation attendees, and viewer labs. Read more…
Your supports, wherever you need them

Great for Student Devices
Install the Symbly iPad app on your student’s personal device, and know they’ll always have the latest supports you create right away.
The Symbly App smartly syncs when you have an Internet connection available, but you can then take your supports with you — even to the middle of nowhere.
Included for Free
Did we mention the Symbly iPad App is a free companion to your existing Symbly subscription? We want all of our subscribers to have access to this incredibly useful tool.
Symbly is the App for That
You no longer need to settle for purchasing twenty different uncustomizable iPad apps for schedules, timers, communication boards, storybooks…Create any type of visual support on Symbly and it works on iPad, too.
While we think the best editing experience will always be on the desktop, you can now edit your visual supports right on your iPad. Perfect for making quick modifications on the go to schedules, or creating a transition board right when you need it.

Text to Speech Built In
Advanced text-to-speech technology helps bring your supports alive for your users. Powered by Acapela Group for the most natural voices available. (Note: TTS requires additional one-time purchase of voice(s) at $4.99 each).
Coming Soon — we’re always improving
We’re actively working to expand our interactivity options, and we’ll be rolling out some great new features soon like draggables and droppables.
Soon you’ll be able to embed videos directly in your supports. We’ll take care of making sure that they play flawlessly on the computer and on the iPad.
While our syncing and collaboration technology is powerful, sometimes you just want to make sure you never lose anything. Coming soon, you’ll be able to see a list of every version of each of your supports, so you can rollback to any point in time — like before your teammate Brad thought it was a good idea to delete all those pages in the communication board.
