Teachers have the use of sensory toys when organising class visits. Our colleague, Linda devised a ‘social story’ so that teachers / facilitators can prepare students with learning difficulties for their library visit. Linda worked with Fiona Ferris from AsIAm (Ireland’s National Autism Charity) who provided guidance on language and what to describe in the story.

We provide books for children that deal with a range of social and personal issues. These books act as soft introductions to complex issues and are written in a way that young children can understand easily. The books initiate social awareness for children and allow them to understand themselves, others, and the world around them.
