Animated shorts are entertaining for kids of all ages and also incorporate some (sneaky) language-based concepts. These wordless videos are great as a therapy material... "Even without any speech?” Of course!

Wordless videos provide opportunities for spontaneous commenting, problem solving, and emotional inferencing (just to name a few). Since we use them so frequently in therapy, we decided to compile a list of 12 of our personal favorites.

“But I want to know how I can apply them in speech therapy!” We’ve got you covered there too! Check out our post from back in February discussing specific ways to use wordless videos in speech therapy to target specific language concepts.
