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.
 
Rose lives on her own and she has picked up some bad habits about eating and taking exercise. Her energy is low and she gets tired easily. When her doctor tells her that her weight is causing health problems, she decides to get in shape. We follow Rose through the struggles and triumphs of her weight loss journey, the new activities she takes up, and the good friends and support she finds along the way.
Losing weight is hard for everyone. Obesity is common, and people with learning disabilities are more likely than other people to become obese, and at a younger age. Rose Gets in Shape can help people to talk about their own experiences, cope with setbacks, and plan how to make lasting positive changes to their diet and activity level, improving their health and quality of life for the long term.
