Comic strip conversations

Comic strip conversations by Carol Gray, help people with autism develop greater social understanding.

Comic strip conversations provide visual representations of the different levels of communication that take place in a conversation, using symbols, stick figure drawings and colour. By seeing the different elements of a conversation presented visually, some of the more abstract aspects of social communication (such as recognising the feelings and intentions of others) are made more 'concrete' and are therefore easier to understand.

Comic strip conversations can also offer an insight into how a person with autism perceives a situation. Extract from; National Autistic Society Website
