This workshop is aimed at Early Years practitioners in any school, nursery, or childcare environment, to support the play and learning of children with special educational needs and disabilities.

  • What are the earliest skills children need to learn?
  • How do I teach children with significant communication and learning needs?

Code: OTSA/18/83 Ambitious & Inclusive Sensory Story Telling: Joanna Grace

This course is aimed at Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Special school teachers, who are looking to:

  • foster the characteristics of effective early learning in their classrooms
  • create enabling environments with rich learning opportunities and stimulating resources
  • support young people to develop a positive sense of their own identity and preferences

Sensory stories are a glorious paradox. They are very simple, but have the capacity to open the world up, and to create opportunities for connection and communication. They are a porthole through which children are enabled to explore - in a sensory way - the richness of culture, history, art, and all the wondrous aspects of being human.

Joanna Grace is an international special educational needs and disabilities consultant, and is the founder of The Sensory Project.

The Sensory Project is based on the idea that with the right knowledge and a little creativity, inexpensive items can become effective tools for inclusion. In all her work Jo seeks to contribute to a world where people are understood in spite of their differences.
