Wordless picture books, or wordless videos (we see you, Pixar), can be GREAT ways to work on language and literacy! Your child can expand their imagination and create their own stories, dialogues, problems, and solutions with the beautiful frameworks created. During therapy, we might use post-its or speech bubble stickers to practice generating messages, taking perspective, and building their own story (if you laminate these stickers, you can reuse them with dry erase markers)! If you’re on the computer, you can annotate the screen using Zoom, Snip ‘n’ Sketch & Paint (Windows), or Preview (Mac)!
