Providence, RI, November 6, 2023 – Inclusive Icons, a pioneering enterprise dedicated to enhancing inclusivity and accessibility in public spaces, is proud to announce its official launch. This marks the beginning of a global movement for cognitively accessible signage.
Founded by a speech-language pathologist, Inclusive Icons believes that cognitive accessibility in public spaces is not just a goal; it’s a fundamental right. The company’s mission is to bridge the communication gap and make communities more accessible to all abilities. Inclusive Icons offers signage featuring universal picture symbols from their pictogram partner, ARASAAC, which are being used in a growing number of communities around the world. These symbols are designed for universal public use, eliminating barriers to understanding and making communities more accessible to those with communication challenges.
Unlocking Accessible Spaces:
Going above and beyond your average playground communication boards, Inclusive Icons’ flagship products include accessible signage for various environments, such as playgrounds, zoos, nature trails, medical facilities, public transportation, and pedestrian safety. These signs are designed to be informative, engaging, and tailored to each community’s unique needs, making the world a more inclusive place.
One of the unique aspects of Inclusive Icons signage is the opportunity to showcase local sponsors and organizations. By partnering with Inclusive Icons, local non-profit organizations and businesses can work together to enhance the sense of community and emphasize the importance of inclusive public spaces.
The Impact on Communities:
Cognitively accessible signage isn’t just about meeting legal requirements; it’s about making communities more inclusive and welcoming to all abilities. With Inclusive Icons signage, communities have the chance to foster understanding, improve public spaces, and enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors alike.
“Inclusive Icons is not just a business; it’s a movement. The mission is to make the world more accessible and communicative for everyone. When communities adopt Inclusive Icons signage, they send a powerful message about their commitment to inclusivity,” says founder and speech-language pathologist Lee Ann Faria.
