Boardmaker in Libraries

We are excited to announce the start of a new support for parents/ carers of children and young people with additional support needs; The Boardmaker in Libraries Project.

Boardmaker software can be used to make visual symbol supports. With Scottish Government funding, ASL Service and NHS partners have now made this available in the following six Edinburgh libraries for families to use at any time:

  • Central
  • Craigmillar
  • Drumbrae
  • Gilmerton
  • Leith
  • Wester Hailes

In addition, we are running monthly parent/ carer ‘drop in sessions’ in each library to provide guidance and support in using the software and creating appropriate resources. Times and dates are detailed on the flyers below.
