Wordless videos provide (what seems like) endless opportunities to elicit language and target problem-solving skills. If you are familiar with our site, you know that we have several articles covering our favorite wordless videos that serve as our go-tos in our speech therapy sessions.
This post adds on to those lists of videos, with some of our NEW favorite videos - just in time for the holidays (see below). Everyone loves a good seasonal activity, right?
Where you can use them:
Speech and language therapy (our bias-personal favorite)
Camp/after school programs
...Honestly wherever you have a tablet or computer available
We use wordless videos to teach:
-Commenting and asking/responding to questions
-Expanding sentence structures
-Navigating problems and finding solutions
-Retelling and summarizing
-Finding the main idea (& other story elements)
-Taking others’ perspective
If you’d like to read about more details discussing specifically how to target these skills, check out our very first wordless videos article.
