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.
 
It is important for every man to check his balls (testicles) regularly and to see his doctor immediately if he finds any changes that are not normal for him. You can use pictures and information in this book to help men with intellectual disabilities to learn more about their testicles and about how to look after them.
The pictures tell the story of Tom, who finds a lump while checking his balls in the shower. We follow him as he seeks help from his GP, has tests and hears that the lump is not due to cancer. The pictures are designed to help the reader to ask questions or shake their concerns.
