Welcome to our bilingual Arabic / English symbol dictionary of frequently used words in spoken and written communication (Tawasol in Arabic) represented by images and pictograms. It is hoped the freely available symbols designed in Doha with the support of a Qatar National Research Fund project can become part of a toolkit of strategies to benefit those with language learning, communication and literacy difficulties.

It has been funded thanks to a NPRP award [NPRP 6 – 1046 – 2 – 427]from the Qatar National Fund (a member of The Qatar Foundation) and thanks must also go to all those participants in Doha and to ARASAAC for allowing their symbols to be used in this project.
