I teach literacy and speech and language interventions in a special education school in the UK. I work with pupils age 3-19 with a range of learning needs including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties, Complex Needs, Behavior Challenges, Downs Syndrome, Global Delay, and Multisensory Impairment. My multisensory stories and poems immerse the listener by telling a story using words and sensory stimuli (story props). They motivate and engage the learner connecting them to literacy, culture and topics in a fun and meaningful way. The story props are all low budget items that can be found around the home and classroom. Listening to rhyme and rhythm supports memory and aids learning playing a crucial role in language development, the learning of concepts, communication and early literacy skills such as listening and attention skills, anticipation, turn-taking and making choices. My stories are adapted to meet a range of abilities and needs from curious preschoolers to teenagers with complex needs. They can be used in mainstream and SEN schools as the combination of sensory stimuli, rhyme and the repetitive structure of the stories forms an excellent base on which to scaffold learning.
