Return to School Video Model and Language Recommendations

Visual supports are helpful for all learners.

Consider creating a custom video model of your school and protocols for families and students to learn what to expect when they arrive back to school.

    • E.g. drop-off protocol, entering school, leaving school, what room/classes available (music, gym, library, computers), recess activities and routines, classroom set-up
    • See the below link for a SD61 example video:

  • Ensure your video model (or social story) uses simple language that is accessible for all – see the below link for language recommendations:
