Books Beyond Words – Wordless Therapy Storybooks

 
Thinking in pictures
 
People who can’t read or who don’t like written words are often very good at reading pictures. That’s why there are no words in these picture stories.
 
These books all tell a story, but they also let the reader tell their own story – the one they see in the pictures. This can tell you a lot about a person’s inner world and their understanding of situations. There is plenty to talk about and each story explores feelings and relationships as well as giving information.
 
Belonging to a community reduces isolation, gives people meaning and purpose, and can equip people to contribute more fully. To belong to a community means that people recognise you for who you are, care for you and miss you when you are not there.
 
Going to Church can support people to explore aspects of a church community, and to decide if they want to be part of it. It will also help a church community actively consider how to reduce the barriers to participation that some members of society face. When read together by church members, with and without learning disabilities, this story will deepen understanding of people’s experiences, the issues that they can encounter in church, and some of the ways in which we can work together to create stronger communities.
