Visual Museum Guide

We are delighted to have a child friendly Visual Museum Guide or Social Story which explains social situations to neuro-divergent children to help them feel safe when visiting our site.

This visual museum guide was created as part of a project undertaken by Cork City Museums, and generously funded by The Heritage Council to augment access and make our museums more inclusive. 

This guide was developed under the guidance of occupational therapists Linda Horgan, Cork Occupational Therapy Services Ltd, Dr. Helen Lynch, UCC, Dr Alice Moore, UCC, & P4Play Team members: Thomas Morgenthaler, Rianne Jansens. 

The final version of the visual guide was piloted and approved by a group of neuro-diverse teenagers and young adults, Ronan, Rory, Ciaran, Isaac (known amongst themselves as “The Young Offenders”).
