We work with story in a number of ways:
- to help connect communities and cultures
- facilitate change
- support learning and development
- access the school curriculum
- enhance social interaction
Multi-sensory storytelling offers the opportunity to connect with those who find it difficult to communicate verbally. A range of stories have been developed to enable the voice of lived experience and access culture. Some of our stories deal with sensitive issues, such as growing up and separation anxiety, while other stories tell folk-tales. In addition, sharing personal digital stories can support service design, training and consultation. These have been effective in changing policy and attitudes around people with PMLD.
Most of all, we have fun telling stories in the community.
You can access our multi-sensory stories through the PAMIS Library, and these can be borrowed by families, schools and day-centres.
