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.
 
For someone with an intellectual disability, leaving one’s family for a group home can be rather a frightening experience. This book is designed to help people with intellectual disabilities make a happy transition to a new home.
Peter finds that living with his new friends is fun, but many jobs previously done by Mum now have to be shared among them. In this book Peter goes through all the traumas and thrills of getting ready to move. He likes his new home but not everything is rosy. He makes mistakes and has quarrels, but he discovers that people care and understand, and want to help him feel at home.
