Sensory Storytime sessions are an exciting new addition to the services offered by EBB-OT and combine my professional background and Occupational Therapy experience with my additional role as a Volunteer Librarian. In these sessions, which are available to pre-school and school aged children with autism, developmental disabilities and their typically developing peers, I combine popular story books with a wide variety of sensory activities. The additional fun interactive elements make these sessions more accessible to children who may struggle to engage with a regular story time.
A visual timetable is used throughout each group which helps the participants understand what will happen during the session and the children are supported to engage in carefully planned multi-sensory activities throughout which help to alert and calm their sensory systems and promote engagement and interaction.
These sessions which are great fun, can also serve to provide the teachers, support staff and parents who accompany their children with ideas for sensory activities which they can try at home, nursery or school.
