Communication Boards 

Communication boards are used to help share messages with others. They are for everyone to use but can especially help children and adults who can understand more than they are able to say -  to express themselves and interact with others.

There are five communication boards at Woburn Safari Park to help individuals communicate about a wide range of topics including the animals, leisure facilities, food and drink and self-care.

Click here for more information about our communication boards and download them before your visit. 

British Sign Language Boards

In the UK, British Sign Language (BSL) is the most commonly used form of sign communication. It involves using a combination of hand movements, shapes and facial expressions to communicate. BSL is the language used by the Deaf community in the UK, and for many is their first language. 

There are many British Sign Language boards in the Foot Safari to help individuals learn BSL phrases related to their visit.

Click here for more information about our BSL boards or download a printable sheet of all the boards before your visit. 

Social Scripts

Social scripts are used to inform individuals about a social scenario, event or activity. They describe what will happen and use specific information about what might happen, why it happens and how it might make us feel. They are usually accompanied by images or symbols to help that person’s understanding. They can be an incredibly useful tool for autistic individuals or those with high levels of anxiety.
