Social Scripts

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.
