8 Fall Books Perfect For Answering Wh Questions In Speech Therapy

picture of a fall book

Do you always need more wh question speech therapy activities?  I love using books in my speech therapy sessions to target answering wh questions!  Literacy-based sessions can be used to target any goal, are low-to-no prep, and are very engaging! Targeting wh questions can be done using any book.  In this post, I’m sharing 8 of my favorite fall-themed books for targeting wh questions! The books are divided by type of question (who, what, when, where) but they all can be used for targeting mixed wh questions as well! 

When doing literacy-based speech sessions, I love to pair books with my fall wh question visual bookmarks. You can grab the free fall-themed wh question visual bookmarks by entering your name, personal email, and clicking the pink button below!
