Our Images

All images for visual supports on this site are from open source, royalty-free sources. The current vocabulary/image library that fuels the activities on Language Playroom has over 3,000 entries, so the source varies.

  • The foundational images for the site were created using illustrations from NotoEmoji, an open-source library of emojis. Approximately 850 words in the library use NotoEmoji images.

  • Another great resource utilized by Language Playroom is Picto Selector, multi-langual free software that can be used to access several languages of visual supports. This is an especially great resource for early language learners, AAC users, and anyone looking for a free alternative to Boardmaker. Approximately 1,000 images in the Language Playroom library were made with images from Picto Selector.

  • All photographs used in visual supports have been released with a license that allows for noncommerical reuse and requires no attribution. Most were sourced through Pixabay, Vecteezy, Clipart-Library, and Classroom Clipart.

  • If you would like your own copy of the image files used on this site for personal use, please use the contact form on the front page. Any requests made including proof of donation via Ko-Fi will be honored.

Our Code

The entire site is maintained by one CCC-SLP speech-language pathologist with a beginner-level knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. The code of this site is a combination of elements made from other coders made available online, as well as code written by the site's administrator.

  • The code required for filtering and randomly generating articulation target words was written by the site adminstator, including all of the phonological and semantic data of each entry. This was done by-hand by the administrator to ensure that the information is correct, and that dialectical differences can be accomodated. For example, in General American English, "caramel" can be pronounced with two or three syllables, so given that variance, it does not appear in syllable-based word targets, but can be found elsewhere for pages that include items like "medial R" or "candy."

  • The layout and base CSS for this site was purchased from Ingrid Kuhn via ThemeForest and modified for the site's needs by the administrator. The link to find the theme can be found here.
