Product description

Review

This book identifies many of the problems our children exhibit as a result of their sensory difficulties, such as delayed learning, and low moods and behaviour. It introduces sensory stories as a resource to break down barriers to learning and understanding. The examples within draw upon Joanna's incredible insight into the world of special needs children through her experiences in the role of teacher and enabler. This is vital reading for every special needs parent and teacher alike. --James Gordon, Autism advocate and Social Media Campaigner, single parent of a boy with severe Autism

Take a pinch of glitter, a peck of spice, a splash of water, pebbles, a torch and noise makers; add the guiding spell of this book and we are ready. Through inspirational ideas, clearly and simply explained, Jo shows how everyone, including those with the most profound needs, can share and learn through the deep magic of stories. I wish this book had been around years ago when I first began teaching students with profound learning difficulties. --Gill Warren, English Co-Coordinator, Sir Charles Parsons School, Newcastle, UK

Teachers will love the stories, the lesson plans and record keeping ideas. --Penny Lacey, Senior Lecturer in Education, School of Education, University of Birmingham, UK

Joanna Grace has developed the concept of sensory stories based on her extensive experience in working with children in mainstream and special settings... The stories use touch, smell, sight and taste to tell the story and they are not dependent on the ability to understand and process language.
Grace provides a clear framework and rationale for her work and explains the relevance of it for children and adults with a range of learning differences such as ASD and mental health difficulties... This is a well-researched book, which will appeal to a wide audience.

(Mary Mountstephen, author, editor SEN Magazine)

But what impressed me most was the way the book explains every element and idea, providing useful information and practical methods to enable practitioners to makes sensory stories a part of classroom life fairly quickly. It was an inspiring read and I will be sharing it with my colleagues in their mainstream early years and Key Stage 1 classrooms, as well as with those working in specialised settings with children of all ages. (Helen Punter-Bruce, specialis teacher for early years children with additional needs, East Sussex Special Children)

The author, Joanna Grace is passionate about sensory stories and their life enhancing power comes through loud and clear in her book aimed at those who work with children, young people and adults who have special educational needs... As well as using sensory stories with individuals, they can also be shared in a group... excellent 'resource-guide' to hand... Practitioners/carers and parents aware of the particular needs of their group/individuals would be able to choose other stories appropriate to those needs and the sensory stimuli to go with them.
