Welcome to Touching Stories
Multi-Sensory Storytelling for Children and Adults
with Intellectual Disabilities
We're back! After a four-year hiatus, Touching Stories is gearing up to bring multi-sensory storytelling back to audiences in Colorado! See a message from Director, Gwen Bonilla, here:
In my years as a storyteller, I have come to realize that storytelling can and should be more than a passive entertainment for children.
Storytelling has the ability to be an interactive, whole body experience to help people learn about their world.
Touching Stories is a program geared toward children and adults with intellectual disabilities to help them experience story through, not just words, but also "book pages" that allow them to access manipulatives, smells, and textures that relate directly to the story they are hearing.
