Adaptive Books Fun!

Do you like to incorporate literacy activities in speech sessions?  Wished you could use literacy activities with students with limited vocabulary or attention span?  I like to use DIY adaptive books in my speech sessions for these students!

There are TONS of websites out there that provide printable books ready to use.  I like to print them, laminate them, and make Boardmaker symbols to match the vocabulary on the pages.  Add some Velcro, and done!  You can staple them together, use a binding machine, or just use a binder ring to attach them for safe keeping.  You can use these over and over year after year.  I make these for every theme and concept!

You can use this activity for a variety of goals:

  • Answering questions
  • Recalling sequences or details
  • Increasing expressive or receptive vocabulary
  • Categorization
  • Expanding utterance length
  • Articulation
  • Attending to task
  • Matching
  • And more!

Where to find these books?  Check out the following websites!
