Tall Tales service for people with learning disabilities

Tall Tales service for people with learning disabilities

What is the Tall Tales service?

The Tall Tales service is now available to local organisations to provide bag books, which are multi-sensory story books for people with severe or profound learning disabilities. The Tall Tales service has been developed in partnership with the Wokingham Learning Disability Partnership Board. 

What are bag books?

Bag books are unique, hand-made multi-sensory resources aimed at developing communication skills for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities. They are designed for those who may find it difficult to access mainstream books, as they are told interactively through voice and emotion rather than words and pictures. They are also hugely beneficial to those with autistic spectrum disorders and visual and hearing impairments. Visit the Bag Books website for more details.
