What: Touching Stories is a unique therapy model,
specifically designed for people with intellectual and developmental
disabilities, that pairs the social and emotional learning of story with
sensory integration activities in a way that is educational, engaging, and
simply, a lot of fun! We have adapted our Touching Stories for at home use.
Gwen will first lead participants in a scavenger hunt for the sensory items
needed for the stories (all items are common items found in every home) and
then will tell the sensory-based stories to the group.
