The Benefit of Sensory Stories
Sensory stories can be a great way to support children with special educational needs. We all learn from our senses everyday. A child with sensory impairments or physical disabilities may face practical barriers to this learning: they can’t see the picture; they can’t reach the toy. Children who experience sensory processing difficulties as part of their condition, (often children with Autism, ADHD, Tourettes, or similar conditions can struggle with sensory processing) may need support in learning to regulate their reaction to sensory stimuli. Sensory stories are a fun way of providing this support and of simply sharing a story together.
