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.
If you are interested in learning or improving a language (including English), our colleague Simon from Inchicore Library recently reviewed three of our excellent online resources. There are also a variety of other aids to language learning which you might not expect to find in our suite of online resources and which Simon outlines for you here.
