The Visual Decoder for Stories programme enhances children’s story engagement through visual representation. Utilising the latest cognitive research and simple shapes, this method encourages children to draw pictures—charts, graphs, and icons—deepening comprehension and fostering creativity. The session shows parents and educators how to use this structured drawing approach to deepen children’s engagement with stories.
