Speaking Space

Lots of information and social stories about lockdown that explain clearly what is happening, with signing and symbols

“Social stories” are a learning tool designed to explain events so that people can begin to understand, predict and come to terms with what is going on. By going through them regularly, a person is helped to process what is happening.

They are different to the stories we create about the events in our personal histories.


Excellent images for explaining the pandemic and all the associated procedures.  What we love about these resources is that they feature people with learning disabilities themselves, active and in control of the information.



People who can’t read or who don’t like written words:

Beyond Words: empowering people through pictures

Beating the Virus is the wordless story that we made about what to do if you have coronavirus and how to keep yourself and others safe. Reading Kali's story can give people the opportunity to talk about their own experiences. You can download it for free here.

Good Days and Bad Days is wordless booklet with scenes from existing Beyond Words stories looking at what makes a ‘good day’ and what makes a ‘bad day’. Also free here

Having a Test for Coronavirus is a wordless story that shows what happens at a drive through testing centre and also what a home test is like. It can help people to prepare and make informed choices. Free here

Lenny and Lily in Lockdown and Lenny and Lily Return to School are two free wordless stories for primary school children. They can help children tell their lockdown stories and share their feelings about going back to school. Both free here

Online book clubs. Our book clubs used to meet in person to read wordless stories and share their own stories at the same time. Now, they meet online. Theres more information and a video on our website
