Free download of resources

Books without Words regularly have at least one of their resources at 1/2 price to purchase.  This month it is “Going to the doctor” and “Going to Out-patients.”

This is a great way to build up your resource library from this organisation.  Remember though this is UK based resources, so some images or messages may not be accurate for an Australian audience.  However, you could add an Australian image, where needed, to your conversation with the person using the books.

 There are also many of their resources available at 5 pounds each for ipad or kindle. http://booksbeyondwords.co.uk/bookshop

In addition a number of their resources are available for free download. http://booksbeyondwords.co.uk/resources
Print these off in color and have them bound properly - they are great resources for many people.  Remember many people with low literacy prefer a hard copy to looking at screens.

Currently in the free download section, there are some titles which have no language, or a few words. Some have longer statements.  Use as a basis for making it work for your audience.
Check out the titles
- “How to look after my balls.”
- “Having a colonoscopy.”

Talk to Cathy about modifying your health literature for people with low literacy.
