Description

Not every child communicates in spoken words; however, that hardly means they have nothing to say.

Join us on a journey that showcases the power of friendship, connection, and imagination.

Beyond Words is a valuable social-emotional teaching tool. This must-have resource will compliment any home library, school, speech language program, or classroom. Through beautiful illustrations and thoughtful text, we come to understand the inner world of children that have differences that others can’t see.

Children with speech/language challenges such as Apraxia of Speech (CAS) can often feel isolated and alone. Beyond Words creates an understanding of what life with a communication disorder feels like not only for the child diagnosed but for the child’s peers. Along with highlighting the desire children with special needs have to be included it reminds us that everyone contributes in their own unique ways.

When we practice inclusion the fun we can have is Beyond Words.
