BETT Awards 2023 Finalist

Inclusive Stories is an online, computer assisted software subscription that allows parents (at home) or teachers, therapists, and support staff (within a school or organisation) to provide engaging, lovingly animated and narrated sensory stories and printable resources, for learners with a wide range of educational needs.

Inclusive Stories is available at and is the creation of Pete Wells, an award-winning special educational needs teacher and senior leader. Pete wrote Inclusive Stories so that educators can provide sensory experiences for children and adults of all ages and abilities: including learners with severe and complex special needs, physical disabilities, sensory impairments or learning difficulties.

“Sensory experiences and play help students to learn more about the world around them and supports language development as they learn to respond to different stimuli. Sensory play encourages learning through exploration, curiosity, problem solving and creativity,” explains Pete.

“It was extremely important to me that everyone was able to ‘become’ the storyteller,” said Pete. “This is incredibly empowering for the learners and excellent for developmental processes such as cause and effect and communication. Inclusive Technology have done a wonderful job of facilitating that.”

The Bett Awards are a celebration of the inspiring creativity and innovation that can be found throughout technology for education. Produced in association with Besa, being a Bett Award-winner is simply the best way to showcase your organisation with a sign of excellence. Inclusive Stories was honoured as one of 185 finalists across the 24 education technology categories.

Commenting on the announcement, Chris Thornton, Creative Director, Inclusive Technology said, "The interest in Inclusive Stories has been enormous. It is now being used in thousands of SEN schools and organisations in more than 20 countries worldwide. We look forward to growing the library of deeply engaging, all-age, interactive Inclusive Stories".

Winners will be announced during a BETT Award Celebration at the BETT Awards in London on 29th March.

Details about each finalist are listed on the BETT Awards 2023 Shortlist.
