COVID-19 Vaccination Social Scripts
There may be many people in our community, including those on the autism spectrum, who may find the process of getting a COVID vaccination stressful.
Amaze, the peak body for autistic people and their supporters, in partnership with National Disability Services, have developed social scripts that outline the process of getting a COVID-19 vaccination to people with autism.
Social scripts are story-based strategies using images and descriptions to explain new experiences and social environments. These social scripts help to provide people with an opportunity to prepare themselves for their vaccination and reduce anxiety.
The script can be applied to any situation where someone is receiving a COVID-19 vaccination, as the process is consistent across Australia.
Visit the Amaze website to download a copy of the script or to learn more.
