I have listed a few ways that wordless books can be used at home, in school and therapy sessions. You may focus on different goals depending on your child's age and current difficulties. You may also work through a progression over different "sessions" at the pace suitable for your child.
For example, If you have a school-age child who has difficulty with handwriting and putting thoughts on paper; you may choose to focus on your child describing and telling with the wordless books without a pencil/paper component. If you have at toddler, you may spend many times facilitating the story for your child when one day they decide to "read" the book for themselves.
Have you "read" wordless picture books with your children? Have you used them as a therapist? What's your favourite wordless picture book?
