Bag Books Collection


Bag Books is the only organisation in the world publishing multi-sensory books specifically for people with learning disabilities.

 

Bag Books are for people with severe or profound and multiple learning disabilities and are told through voice and emotion rather than words and pictures.

 

Their multi-sensory story bags include instructions, story outlines and objects for use by workers in a group setting.

 

For specific details of story bags, please visit the Bag Book website. The sets are available to borrow for local groups and organisations who work with adults, children and teenagers with specific learning needs.
