Social story resources
Gymnastics Victoria, in partnership with Step by Step Psychology, are proud to present our new Social Story resources.

Although Social Stories were originally developed specifically for children with ASD, they are also useful social navigation tools for children with intellectual disability, poor comprehension skills and/or anxiety.
Clubs are encouraged to provide access to Social Stories on their websites for current and new members who may require assistance navigating common social situations in the gymnastics environment, including:
