Jersey Heritage have developed visual stories for all six Visitor Attractions managed by the charity. These visual stories have been inspired by material produced by the Science Museum for their autistic visitors and are intended to give an understanding of the attraction and what to expect when they come on a visit.
These visual stories have been written in consultation with Autism Jersey . The Chief Operations Officer of Autism Jersey, Paul Sullivan, said: ‘We congratulate Jersey Heritage on their initiative and believe that it is a first in Jersey for someone to draw up a visual story for the visiting public. People with autism can find it difficult to visit new places because they don’t know what to expect, but to have it presented like this in a very visual way makes it easier for them to cope. We hope that it doesn’t just benefit local families but those visiting from the UK too.’
The visual stories can be downloaded on the specific visitor attraction page here.
