Multisensory stories immerse the learner by telling a story through the senses using sensory stimuli (story props) that provide new experiences to calm and alert the sensory system in a safe, therapeutic and motivating environment.
Exposure to the stimuli enables the learner to build a bank of motivators that can calm when anxious or stressed. This record of likes, dislikes and preferences can be an invaluable tool to inform on behaviour strategies and the writing of care plans.
The multisensory stories and poems are adapted to meet a range of abilities from curious preschoolers to adolescents with complex needs, helping individuals to understand the world and connecting them to topics, culture and literacy in a way that is meaningful to their lives.
Listening to rhythm and rhyme supports memory and aids learning, playing a crucial role in language development, the learning of concepts and communication.
The repetitive structure of the stories forms an excellent base on which to scaffold learning enabling the individual to work toward personal targets and learning goals.
Rhyming Multisensory Stories resources promote comprehension and early communication skills; listening & attention, anticipation, turn-taking and making choices, making them effective for use in nursery, Pre-k, EYFS, preparatory, Kindergarten and Year 1 mainstream settings.
