Adapted books are any book that has been modified to better fit the needs of your students. The majority of adapted books are printable books that both parents, teachers, and service providers can use with students. And adapted books are beneficial for any child, not just those with special needs.
Adapted books can take many forms and there are different ways to prep an adapted book. It's all up to what works best for you and your students.
Utilizing interactive adapted books in your classroom, or at home, can garner huge successes for your students. Because adapted books engage students in the text, children learn a new skill or concept, or about a new topic without even realizing they are learning.
Adapted books can also double as social stories, helping you prepare your students for upcoming events or holidays, social interactions, and other unexpected occurrences.
