Creating Experience Books Are Fantastic Activities to Engage Children of Varying Ages

Each and every one of us has a story to tell. Stories about growing up, school, holidays, family, friends, and travel. It's not just the big moments that are stories either. A bird you saw on your walk, the delicious dinner you ate, or a beautiful song you heard – those moments are also stories. Telling and hearing stories are important for our brains since they’re connected with memory, emotion, conversation skills, and more.  

How can we help children with hearing loss develop early storytelling skills and grow their spoken language abilities?

Experience books, crafts, and activities! With these books and creations, we develop characters, settings, action, problem-solving, and solutions. We make memories by focusing on vocabulary and auditory memory.

Experience books and creations are wonderful to make with children of all ages. You can easily make them with minimal materials, time, and effort and spark endless storytelling and conversation.

This interactive webinar will:

  • Explore experience books and creations
  • Highlight why experience books help children with hearing loss
  • Define how experience books can grow listening, talking, memory, storytelling, and other critical development skills
  • Give parents and families ideas, activities, and strategies for experience books
