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)

Classroom setting

Camp/after school programs


...Honestly wherever you have a tablet or computer available

We use wordless videos to teach:

-[Emotional] inferencing

-Making predictions

-Commenting and asking/responding to questions

-Expanding sentence structures

-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.
