You can buy and download story packs here. All story packs include a sensory story, detailed advice on how to share the story effectively, a list of things you will need to tell the story and ideas for further activities and reminiscence.
ReminiSense sensory stories do not come with sensory objects – instead they come with instructions for finding (and sometimes making) simple,everyday items to use in the story. Sourcing the objects for the story yourself gives you the opportunity to make any changes or add any personal touches you feel are appropriate for your particular listener(s).If you are looking for sensory stories that come ready with all the items resourced for you, you may want to visit Bag Books. This wonderful charity provides multi-sensory books for people who have learning disabilities.
