- Sclera Picto - monochrome AAC symbols created with and for adults with intellectual disabilities.
- Bliss Symbolics - long-established in AAC contexts, but quite different and abstract - Bliss is a visual language.
- Do2Learn - loads of free pre-made picture cards and communication boards for users with autism
- How It Is - small symbol set from the NSPCC focusing on rights, feelings, safety and sexuality
- Straight Street - a colourful symbol set released under Creative Commons.
- PictoSelector - excellent freeware board making software which includes 24,000 symbols
- ARASAAC A great set of Creative Commons pictographs, photosymbols and signing clips.
