Grace L: These are super useful for working with my students who are using AAC to show them that THEY can tell a story and not have to worry about adapting stories on the fly. Beautiful pictures and a good length for the stories so that the kiddos stay engaged.

Buyer: Really great resource of stories. I love that they are written almost exclusively in core vocabulary. However, fair warning, this does mean the stories are lacking in a lot of detail and the plots have been simplified significantly. This is not bad in and of itself, but I purchased these stories to read in mixed language level classrooms, which means some of the students with higher language skills can find the stories too simple/boring. I use it as a way to have these students practice sight words, so it all works out in the end! The illustrations that go with these stories are great as well- I love that they are not weird looking cartoon people!

We hope you enjoy these CORE vocabulary book!

This book is based on a selection of core vocabulary, or the highest frequency words in speech and writing. Remarkably, these seemingly simple words make up roughly 80% of what we say!

They can be used and combined for a full variety of communicative functions (such as initiation, termination, commenting, requesting, asking, interjecting and directing others). Teaching core vocabulary allows students the chance to do more than just get their needs and wants to be met, but to develop authentic language skills! 

All of our products are classroom tested and therapy tested- we’ve used them ourselves and know that they are effective! AdaptEd is made up of a team (SLP, OT and SPED teacher / AT Specialist) so that we can offer you the best, and the most reliable resources possible.

We know how frustrating it can be to spend your hard earned money on something- only to open it and find out it’s not what you were looking for. That- this simply is not going to do anything useful for you or your students. We don’t want that- and we know you don’t either! If you’re not completely satisfied with your download email us at and let us know. We’d love to see how we can fix it!

Awesome resources

I'm a literacy specialist in a special school and only discovered you website from a recommendation. your resources are great for all levels at our setting . Staff have converted some into digital books using active-inspire so they are interactive and engage older students. Thanks so much for your help and development of adaptable resources.

Great Books, Responsive Authors

And addendum to my previous review: Not only did the authors get back to me- but they altered the text to show correct capitalization! I'm looking forward to purchasing other products in the future.
