Coming to hospital

Social scripts

We have created social scripts using simple language and photos that describe what to expect when visiting Austin Health.

A note about language: Social scripts provide details about a situation/scenario/event but are more general than social stories as they don't include emotions or details that are specific to a particular individual or their circumstances.

You can use these scripts as a tool to prepare for a specific procedure or appointment at Austin Health.

If you need a more personalised story or alternative format, please contact the Disability Liaison team.
