Social Script helps to engage Autistic holidaymakers

As part of our commitment to helping remove the barriers for participation in the houseboat tourism experience Mandurah Houseboats has created our own Social Script.

A Social Script is a document that uses storytelling techniques to explain new experiences and environments to Autistic people through simple language and images.

Typically a social script will attempt to explain what an Autistic person can expect when visiting a place or event – such as how they’ll travel to a place, what it will look like, who will engage with them, what activities will occur, and what they can do if they feel overwhelmed.

The Mandurah Houseboats Social Script for our wheelchair-accessible houseboat Emily Louise is available to download here. We would welcome any feedback or comments that you may have and if you’d like to email the document’s author please do so on
