Our two Words in Pictures packs provide an extensive bank of images of the most common nouns and verbs in early language development, based on Anne Locke’s Living Language Programme (1985).
The nouns and verbs pictures are grouped by category and can be used in a variety of ways to achieve a wide range of therapy targets, including:
- an understanding of language ‘Where’s the ..?’
- expressive language ‘What is this called?’
- semantic skills ‘Which one would you see in your kitchen?’
- attention and listening ‘Give me the apple and the banana.’
Speech and language therapists and teaching staff may also find the pictures useful when making individualised visual schedules or communication books.
The pictures are grouped by category, many of which can be linked to Curriculum topics e.g. people; parts of the body; food.
The pack follows the developmental order of vocabulary development outlined in Anne Locke’s ‘Living Language’. Words are labelled.
