I have 20 years’ experience working in education, including teaching literacy skills to the travelling community & EFL to Spanish & Moroccan communities. I have spent the past 10 years teaching literacy, numeracy and speech & language interventions in special education to pupils age 3-19 with a range of learning disabilities including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, Profound & Multiple Learning Difficulties, Complex, Multisensory Impairment, Needs, Behaviour Challenges, Downs Syndrome & Global Delay. My multisensory stories and poems connect individuals with SEND to literature, culture and topic in a way that is meaningful to the lives. The stories and poems are fully resourced and their easy to follow, step-by-step format make them accessible for Parents, Guardians, Childminders, Early Years Educators, Teachers, HLTA’s, TA's, Speech Therapists, Play Therapists, Support Workers, Activity Coordinators, Storytellers, Librarians and anyone with an interest in exploring storytelling through the senses in a fun and engaging way! Multisensory stories immerse the story explorer by telling a story using words and sensory stimuli (story props). The props are all low budget items found around the home and classroom. Exposure to sensory stimuli, (story props), engages the story explorer with new experiences to calm and alert their sensory system in a safe, therapeutic and fun environment helping them to understand the world around them. 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. Stories are adapted to meet a range of abilities and needs from curious preschoolers to teenagers with complex needs. Each story includes themed, sensory extension activities making them the perfect resource for use in mainstream schools with Early Years and Primary children, EAL and speech and language students. The combination of sensory stimuli, rhyme and the repetitive structure of the stories forms an excellent base on which to scaffold learning. My website www.rhymingmultisensorystories.com is a free resource full of ideas and sensory inspiration. You will also find a library of FREE multisensory stories & poems to download.
