The Story in Motion – Introduction

The story in motion which I have often demonstrated seeks to help children with speech and incarnation problems in an enjoyable, non-pedantic story sequence which is designed to meet the individual child’s problem. Walking, running, jumping, skipping, galloping and other movements are interspersed with narrative, speech exercises, singing and plot. The space becomes full of imaginative content which is built up over a number of weeks or months. The story or a segment of the story is recapitulated during each session and more content is added which the child learns and applies in the following sessions.

Thus, a healthy therapeutic framework carries the story and the progressive curative exercises.


The following pages contain stories suitable for children in Kindergarten , Ages 3-5, Ages 5-8, Ages 8-9 and children in 5th Grade. ‘ The Dare‘ is a story about a bear adventure.
