With help from the AGFC, the University of Central Arkansas has created social narratives that provide information about what guests can expect during their visit to the Witt Stephens Jr. Central Arkansas Nature Center. Three different versions were created in order to allow readers to choose the one that best fits their needs and comprehension level. All three narratives include both pictures and text to describe the nature center experience. Feel free to choose one version to work through in the weeks/days leading up to your visit, or take a look at all three!
Below are short descriptions of each social narrative, so that you can decide which story best fits your needs.
Level 1: This version includes general tips for caregivers on how to read and use the story as well as more specific tips on each page about the different spaces of the nature center. Level 1 might be best for individuals who will have a caregiver read the narrative to them and visit the nature center with them.
Level 2: This version includes general tips for caregivers on a single page at the beginning of the narrative. Level 2 might be best for individuals who can read the story on their own, but will have a caregiver with them during their visit to the nature center.
Level 3: This version includes more specific and in-depth information about the nature center. Level 3 might be best for individuals who can read the story on their own and may visit with or without a caregiver.
