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.
 
Matthew eats lots of sugary foods and doesn’t take very good care of his teeth. When Matthew gets toothache he goes to see the dentist. At the appointment, he consents to having a check-up and treatment to get rid of his toothache. When he feels better, Matthew goes back to the dentist to learn how to keep his teeth and gums healthy.
The story gives examples of a dental x-ray, an injection, drilling and filling, and also good oral hygiene routines.
This book will be be useful to both professionals and supporters when preparing someone for a visit to the dentist or supporting a patient during an appointment.
