What is the Tes SEN Show?
Story Massage and SEN
Our popular programme of ten simple positive touch strokes is now widely used in Special Schools around the UK. Story Massage is fully inclusive with benefits including increased engagement, communication and attainment. Above all it is fun and interactive, making it enjoyable not only for children and young people with SEN, but also for teaching staff, parents and siblings.
Here is a video of Story Massage in Action in a Special School in Wales.
Some feedback for Story Massage
“Story Massage has become such an important part of everyday family life with our severely disabled daughter, Maisy and her sister, Poppy (photo below). Story Massage has also ignited that creative flare and confidence in helping others that I thought I had lost. I just can’t imagine our lives now without Story Massage. Thank you!” Sophie Kidd-Munnery, Mother
“We’ve been using Story Massage at Ysgol Y Deri Special School for over three years. It is very rare to find an activity, which can engage all learners no matter what their needs, age or disabilities. We love the flexibility to develop your own stories and make it unique to your setting so we can meet the individual needs of the pupils. We have really noticed an improvement in engagement and communication.” Lisa Lawrence, Sensory Learning Leader
