Books Beyond Words Volunteer

The Reading group ‘Books Beyond words’ is for people who have a learning disability or presents with a communication difficulty. There are no words in the books and the story is told by group members taking turns to describe and discuss the illustrations they see. They also let the reader tell their own story – the one they see in the pictures. There is plenty to talk about and each story explores feelings and relationships as well as give information. The sessions engaged the reader with the opportunity to express their understanding of the many life situations they may encounter.

Volunteers in this role will support the members of the group and help to prepare the sessions.
