Social Stories

We’re committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to access our activities regardless of their social or physical ability. We often find that some students who visit us struggle with understanding what is going to happen, or with understanding what to expect once they’re here. This can cause some anxieties and worry ahead of their trip.

To try and counter this, we’ve developed a series of Social Stories which give an overview of each activity, with photos and descriptions of the sensory experiences associated with each activity.

These can all be downloaded below and used at home or in your education setting.

If you have any feedback for us on these social stories, please do let us know. We’re always trying to improve! Contact ella.vogel@derbyshire.gov.uk with feedback.
