Reading: Beginner

  • Acquired reading difficulty (medical term: "alexia") is very common after a stroke or brain injury.

  • This page is for people with aphasia who are able to read single words and short sentences.


  • These materials use repetition, pictures, and phonetic words to build confidence and encourage decoding based on sound-letter correspondence.

TARGET: Use this book to read and write simple, repetitive sentences.

Be Kind was written by a stroke survivor and a speech therapist at Atlas Aphasia Center. During their therapy sessions, Liz and Bri saw a need for simple, repetitive, decodable stories for adults who are re-learning to read. It is a short story about nature and kindness.
