Autism Friendly Visits

Parkent and child visiting Brimbank park 

Parks Victoria is working to increase the accessibility of its parks for people on the autism spectrum. The social script resources for children on the autism spectrum have  been developed with the professional assistance of AMAZE.

The social script has photographs and simple text to show children what they may see and experience during a visit to a park.  You can read them this resource or download the Word document to print out. You can also cut and paste the pages to create a story that best suits your child and your planned park visit.  

A version of the social script is also available in Key Word Sign Australia format, suited for children who are learning to use Key Word Sign to facilitate communication.
