Literacy based therapy is one of my favorite approaches for my students, as we are able to tackle difficult problems, using easy to understand stories. The newest resource I have been utilizing, Vooks, allows these stories to come to life!
Using books in therapy allow for a large number of goals to be targeted using a simple to understand story or theme. Working on expressive and receptive language goals while asking and answering questions about the stories read makes Vooks perfect as it helps increase student’s ability to participate.
Each story is read aloud to the students, and can be paused or played to allow for extra answer time. The words are on the screen, and highlighted as they are read, allowing for students to follow along are read with the story. My articulation students practice finding and listening for words with their speech sounds in them, then read the words with the story.
Vooks also works really well with social skills as they have books about neurodivergence, emotions, and problem solving. The large library of books means there is something perfect for everyone without having to purchase lots of books individually!
You can access Vooks via the apple app store here, google play store here, or access it via a web browser at Vooks.com! Books can be downloaded to your device for easy offline access.
