An inspirational guy

Pete’s sensory stories are one of the most useful educational tools used within SEN provision. I am extremely lucky to work alongside Mr Wells and have had the opportunity to not only watch the magic of his sensory stories take shape with our very special learners ,but I have also had the grate privilege of being involved in a very special making of a specific sensory story for a very special young man.
Great podcast Pete look forward to the many more.
