Literacy continues to be an area that many people of all ages struggle with; The World Literacy Foundation found that 1 in 5 of the UK population continue to struggle with basic levels of reading. Typical information points found in tourist spots or public spaces are often rendered useless or can become embarrassing for parents who are unable to read complex information or stories.
Inclusive Play are proud to work with the most innovative partners. The latest content for the Audionetic interactive audio range are the Clickety stories. Clickety Books is a children’s publishers that develops engaging books and resources with a unique twist; they work with experienced speech and language therapists to design stories that help to develop speech and language skills.
Founded on the principles of Auditory Input Therapy, these stories contain lots of rhythm, rhyme and repetition. This forms the foundation for clearer speech, greater confidence in talking and supports work on individual sound identification that is necessary for early literacy development.
All the stories have been narrated by some well-loved British comedians; Rik Mayall, Catherine Tate and Ronni Ancona and for a school or club setting can also be accompanied by the beautifully illustrated books. Working with well-known voices creates a connection with adults who can enjoy the humour of the stories and for children… well; it’s just a platform for their imagination!
