Book Description

Personal stories are the way we develop a sense of who we are, make sense of our experiences and make and sustain relationships. Research shows that people with severe communication difficulties - such as severe and profound learning disabilities, autism and language impairments - find it hard to recall and share the stories of their lives. This handbook draws on fifteen years of research and practice into personal storytelling in adult services and educational settings. Storysharing is a unique, innovative and highly effective approach to enabling the most severely disabled individuals to participate in telling their own stories.
