We all know that wee ones gravitate toward pictures and photos, and even more so if the images show people and places that they know. So why not create a photo picture book to encourage and facilitate language with younger or nonverbal children? That thought occurred to SLP Kristin Cummings of the Simply Speech Blog when watching her daughter look through family photo albums.
“Seeing Kenzie point out pictures and play mini photo-hunt games with us made me realize that this could be an amazing therapy tool for our younger students and nonverbal children. No, you don’t have to order a board book for each student … go pick up a little photo album at the dollar store. Have mom or dad fill it with family photos and bring it to therapy. Another idea is taking pictures of common objects, emotions, actions, or items that go with a thematic unit and making your own album!”
