About this event

Social Scripts for Children on the Autism Spectrum

A Social Script is a story that shares social information with an autistic child or adult in an accessible way, respectful of their different perspective and interpretation of the social world. A Social Script is written using specific criteria which guide it to be meaningful, safe, patient, non-judgemental and reassuring. A Social Script's aim is to improve the child's understanding by simply sharing social information. With improved social understanding clarity and predictability are established and anxiety is diminished.

Session Objectives:

By the end of the session, participants will:

1) Develop an understanding of what a Social Script is (and what it is not)

2) Learn how to develop a Social Script according to specific criteria.

This workshop will be delivered by Zoom.

  • Booking is on a first come, first served basis
  • This workshop is prioritised for childcare professionals based within the Dublin City Childcare Committee catchment area (If this criteria does not apply to you, your booking may be cancelled).
