St Patrick’s Day – A Multisensory Exploration & Themed Sensory Extension Activities (PDF/eBook)
Rhyming Multisensory Stories connect individuals with special educational needs & disabilities (aged 3-19) to literature, culture and topic in a way that is meaningful to their lives.
A multisensory story is told through the senses using sensory stimuli (story props). The props are low budget, everyday items found around the home.
This story is fully resourced and its easy to follow, step-by-step format makes it accessible for Parents/Carers as well as Teaching Staff, Speech & Language Therapists, Childminders, Play Therapists and anyone with an interest in storytelling in a fun and engaging way!
The story is adapted to meet a range of abilities from curious primary school aged children to adolescents with complex needs.
The rhythm and rhyme promotes communication skills (listening & attention, anticipation, turn-taking and making choices) and builds comprehension and understanding skills.
The themed, sensory extension activities link to areas of the curriculum.
