Summary/Abstract: The realization of the communicative process is impossible without the support of a sign system, which in the healthy child is the natural language. At the same time, people with severe disabilities, because of the intensity of their communicative, psychological, mental or emotional problems, have a real need to use sign systems that have codes other than those of the native language. This article is dedicated to code systems that provide other communication options for children with hearing imairments and children with intense and complex combinations of disturbances in overall functioning. Ways are presented which replace the natural language with other sign systems that provide communication and development of cognitive processes in children with deep hearing and speech disorders – Sign language. Descriptive analysis of widely used communication systems (pictogramideographic system, bliss system), based on symbolic images, with different levels of abstraction: from iconic presentations of specific objects to relation images and modal predicates. All these systems reflect the main trends in the search and the construction of adequate means to replace the natural language in the particular conditions of the special education
