Boardmaker is computer software that contains thousands of Picture Communication Symbols.

Symbols can be used with anyone who may need additional support with communication.

They can be used with:

  • Children and adults with Autistic Spectrum Disorders

Boardmaker Software is available in the following libraries:

If you want to book a computer to use Boardmaker, contact any of the libraries that have the software, or use our self-service booking system.

Every library with Boardmaker has a laminator so that you can laminate your pages and symbols after printing.

  • There is no charge for using Boardmaker in libraries
  • Regular library charges apply for printing (10p A4 or 50p A3)
  • There is a small charge for laminating your pages and symbols (20p)

We will also be running a series of parent/carer support sessions for Boardmaker in the Carnegie Room at City Library. Come along for support and learn how to use Boardmaker and create social stories. It will be a great opportunity to get advice from professionals and meet some new parents/ carers.

The dates for these are as follows:

  • Wednesday 15 March (10am-12pm)
  • Wednesday 17 May (10am-12pm)
  • Wednesday 21 June (10am-12pm)
  • Wednesday 19 July (10am-12pm)
