Social Stories (TM) are a social learning tool that supports the safe and meaningful exchange of information between autistic people, parents, carers, and other contacts such as climbing wall staff.

Developed by Carol Gray, a social story turns a day to day situation into a logical, step-by-step guide. This helps poeple to feel at ease when dealing with the situation in real life, as they have a point of reference to help them and provide a structure.

Potentially a social story could help a climber to feel prepared for their time at the wall. An example is attached here. You may have climbers in mind (individuals, or groups) who might find it useful. If you would like a more specific version that can be adapted to the set up of your wall then do get in touch and we can look at developing this with you.
