Several children attended the second sensory story time at the Boardman library on May 25. The monthly class of five to be offered by librarian Katherina Matasi included a story time using a magnetic story board, sensory stations, music and parachute time. Sensory stations included hands-on activities such as puzzles and musical instruments.

The class is a family story time for children with special needs on any level including ADHD, speech and language delays, cognitive impairments and Autism.

“I like it very much, this is our second time coming,” Ola Alzubi said, mother of 3-year-old Iyad Yasin.

The children were given the ability to experience the story time in whatever way was most comfortable to them. Some sang and danced along during music while others only listened.

The next class will be June 15 and 2 p.m.

Interested parties must register by phone at 330-744-8636 prior to the event. Parents are required to attend the class with their child, and are given a schedule of the class upon arrival.
