Autism Awareness and Support During Your Visit
Visual Supports ("Stories") For Guests With Autism
Visual supports can be used to communicate with people on the autism spectrum. They are adaptable, portable and can be used in most situations.
Visual supports can help to provide structure and routine, encourage independence, build confidence, improve understanding, avoid frustration and anxiety, and provide opportunities to interact with others. They can make communication physical and consistent, rather than fleeting and inconsistent like spoken words can be.
To assist you in your upcoming visit, we have developed visual supports or ‘stories’ for you to print at home and use before and during your trip. We invite you to download these and to use them, or make your own.
