Canberra Community Law, in partnership with Autism Spectrum Australia, has created a series of social scripts and social script templates for justice organisations.
Social scripts are person centred narratives used to introduce new events, interactions and what to expect. They use a combination of simple text and images to explain concepts and foreshadow emotions and what to expect.
Canberra Community Law’s social scripts and customisable social script templates aim to assist autistic people, people with lived experience of mental ill health and low levels of English literacy to access legal services and legal processes.

Social Script Templates for Justice Organisations
Canberra Community Law has developed the following Social Script Templates to assist other justice organisations to improve access to their services:
You are welcome to use these templates to assist your service users. If tailoring to your service, please attribute as: Canberra Community Law originally developed the template for this social script through an ACT Government funded initiative.
If your service would like further guidance on developing social scripts, please contact Autism Spectrum Australia at firstname.lastname@example.org or https://www.autismspectrum.org.au/get-in-touch.
