Stories with Symbols – Bringing stories to life!

Looking for new ways to engage and support children to access books?

Stories with Symbols is an easy to access resource. Originally aimed at children with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN), to make stories more accessible and enjoyable. They are now recognised as an effective resource for engaging all children.

Each film is designed to stimulate interest in books, support comprehension and help children learn new words and ideas.

The film format has been developed with communication and language professionals from across the UK. Each film follows routine format to capture attention and learning while minimising distractions.

It’s well known that learning language and literacy, and developing our communication skills, happens best in natural, enjoyable interactions with important people around us.  Technology can help, but it’s the interaction that is key.
