Specialist Speech and Language Therapy Picture Books

Hello! We are Rebecca and Katherine, two Speech and Language Therapists with over 30 years combined clinical experience (plus we both have small people ourselves) and we love children’s books!

We like to find books that we (and the children!) enjoy and that have useful aspects for developing speech, language and communication skills.

We are keen supporters of the “Read on. Get on” and the “Vision for Literacy” Campaigns and in making books accessible for children with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN). As such we are currently providing training to library staff and a publishing house, and developing a joint venture with a storyteller.

We have put together a few of our favourite picture books that can help children in EYFS with particular speech, language and communication needs, and some of the reasons we like to use them.

Please note these are some suggestions but always talk to a qualified speech and language therapist for specific clinical advice.
