Sensory experiences and play.

Inclusive Stories is a powerful tool for a teacher's toolkit, specifically for learners with a wide range of learning disabilities. Sensory experiences and play helps 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. Used widely in a range of educational settings, Inclusive Stories are fundamental for helping with cognitive development, sensory processing, communication skills, switching skills, cause and effect, building confidence, fostering repetition, reducing anxiety, sensory loss, AAC and much more.
