Event description
Create multi-sensory books with Bag Books

About this Event

As part of King's Global Day of Service, we are running a workshop with registered charity Bag Books, to make multi-sensory books for people with learning disabilities.

Bag Books supports people with learning disabilities through the provision of multi-sensory books and storytelling. Founded in 1993, Bag Books is the only charity in the world publishing multi-sensory books for people with severe or profound and multiple learning disabilities.

Bag Books are aimed at those who cannot benefit from mainstream books. They can be enjoyed without being understood as they are told interactively through voice and emotion rather than words and pictures. They are designed for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities (a maximum developmental age of 18 months), people with severe learning disabilities (a maximum developmental age of 6 years) or people with severe autistic spectrum disorders. They are also hugely beneficial to those with visual and hearing impairments.

Please note, spaces for this event are limited. If you can no longer attend this event, please cancel your ticket so that we can offer your space to someone else.
