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.
 
Having both an intellectual disability and being from an ethnic minority group can make it even more difficult to get good services. If you know someone in this situation, you can use this book to help them to challenge discrimination by service providers.
Two encounters are described, but the principles that they illustrate can apply to countless situations. In the first, three friends get what they want in a café by being assertive and not giving up easily. In the second, one of the friends is helped to resolve problems dealing with her bank.
