Rhyming Multisensory Stories - Storytelling Through the Senses (SEND) - Children and young people's activities


What we do

Free, fully resourced, step by step multi-sensory stories and poems for parents, carers, teaching and childcare professionals, librarians and storytellers and anyone with an interest in storytelling through the senses.

The website is full of sensory ideas, inspiration and strategies and there is a story library of free, fully resourced, step-by-step multisensory stories aimed at helping individuals age 3-19 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities to build communication skills and connect to literature, topic and culture in a way that is meaningful to their lives.

Multisensory stories tell a story using props to back up the spoken word. The props are low budget items found around the home.

Your questions, queries, comments and feedback are always welcome!

Who do we support

Individuals age 3-18 with special educational needs (Autism, Profound & Multiple Learning Disabilities, Moderate Learning Disabilities, Downs Syndrome, Global Delay, Sensory Processing Disorder, Visual Impairment and other learning disabilities).

The stories and poems are also suitable for preschoolers and children up to the age of 8 as the stories encourage communication and form an excellent base on which to scaffold learning.
