Wordless Picture Books:  Building Language with Your Deaf Child

At a basic level, picture books help kids understand that words convey meaning—connecting the pictures in the book with the words on the page, and the words begin to be used in their language development, whether signed or spoken. Kids will check pictures on the page for background knowledge or contextual clues for vocabulary development. They even use the images to learn the names of new objects. By organizing the sequence of events in a story, kids can practice their ability to comprehend what they read. Mastering this skill starts with identifying the beginning, middle, and end and summarizing key events that take place (in order) throughout the story. 

In this webinar, participants will learn multiple ways to build expressive and receptive language skills with their child using wordless picture books, no matter if the reader is a native signer or just beginning to learn.
