Blissymbols Communication UK
Blissymbols form a system of meaning-based symbols which can be used by people with severe difficulties in speaking to communicate without speech. The system has a large and flexible vocabulary and contains logical rules for expanding vocabulary and grammar. It is particularly useful for people with cerebral palsy and related disabilities who may find reading and spelling difficult, but who may still require a linguistically flexible means of communication.
The main aim and functions of Blissymbol Communication UK are to:-
- Provide a UK presence for Bliss
- Provide a contact point and base of support for people who use Bliss in the UK
- Contribute to the development of new symbol vocabulary for use internationally
- Contribute to technological solutions for the implementation of Bliss on computer systems, worldwide.
For a more in-depth explanation of Blissymbols see the Blissymbolics Communication International website.
