What are the Benefits of Multisensory Storytelling?
1. Storytelling creates a bond between the storyteller and the story explorer enhancing and enriching experiences.
2. Rhyming Multisensory Stories connect the individual to literature, culture, and topic in a fun and engaging way.
3. The stories form a base on which to scaffold learning enabling the student to work on personal goals and individual targets.
4. The activities in the stories are designed to promote communication skills: (eye contact, listening, shared attention and language development), self-confidence and well-being (trying out new ideas and skills, practicing self-care, independence and enjoying achievement), self-awareness: (asking for ‘help’, ‘again’ and ‘more’), present opportunities to explore cause and effect and build anticipation skills, promote physical development: (fine and gross motor skills), build knowledge about the environment and the world around us, to engage in scientific experimentation and mathematical concepts and to develop social and emotional skills: (turn-taking, sharing and teamwork).
5. The sensory stimuli (story props) are a tool for the story explorer to explore and express their likes, dislikes, and sensory preferences and to have the opportunity to make choices.
