What are the Benefits of Multisensory Storytelling?

1.  Storytelling creates a bond between the storyteller and the story explorer enhancing and enriching experiences.

2. Rhyming Multisensory Stories connect the individual to literature, culture and topic in a fun and engaging way.

3. The stories form a base on which to scaffold learning enabling the student to work on personal goals and individual targets.

4. The activities in the stories are designed to promote communication skills: (eye contact, listening, shared attention & language development), self-confidence & well-being (trying out new ideas & skills, practicing self-care & independence and enjoying achievement), self-awareness: (asking for 'help', 'again' and 'more'), present opportunities to explore cause & effect and build anticipation skills, promote physical development: (fine  & gross motor skills), build knowledge about the environment & the world around us, to engage in scientific experimentation and mathematical concepts and to develop social & emotional skills: (turn-taking & sharing and teamwork).

5. The sensory stimuli (story props) are  a tool for the story explorer to explore and express their likes, dislikes and sensory preferences and to have the opportunity to make choices.
