I know I've said it before but: I love Mayer-Johnson's Symbol Request

I keep a pretty careful list of every picture I import to Boardmaker from the web and every time I need to "creatively re-purpose" a symbol (i.e. life jacket for body jacket) and when it gets long I submit it to Request a Symbol at the Mayer-Johnson website. A few months ago I submitted the list below and was thrilled with the symbols I received. My new symbols pretty much fall into three categories this time: medical, vocational and sensory. I also like knowing that these symbols will probably be in the next addendum for everyone.

  1. I <3 Mayer-Johnson too! How cool that they provide you with new symbols. I love the ones about "I am too old for that" That's great!!!!

  2. My personal favorite of the new symbols is "don't touch others AAC devices". The look on the face of the character whose device is being touched is awesome.
