Description

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. For example, they need to understand why covering their mouth when coughing is important, ie it stops germs from being spread which may make other people sick. It's important to present the information in a way which allows for unexpected changes to a situation. For complex situations, or for people who have difficulty reporting events in sequence, comic strip boxes may be used, or drawings can be numbered in the sequence in which they occur.

Showing what people are thinking reinforces that others have independent thoughts a concept spectrum children don t intuitively understand. Present the social story to the person at a time when everyone is feeling calm and relaxed, using a straightforward approach, eg I have written this story for you. Figure 4 (below) shows some 'conversation colours' that could be used to represent a range of feelings and ideas. These deceptively simple comic strips can reveal as well as convey quite a lot of substantive information. Carol is the director of The Gray Center for Social Learning and Understanding, a non-profit organization that serves people with ASD, and currently works privately with students, parents, and professionals in a variety of educational and vocational settings.Comic strip conversations can help people with autism to understand concepts that they find difficult.

Comic strip conversations are visual representations of the different levels of communication that happen in a conversation. Comic strip conversations use symbols to represent social interactions and abstract aspects of conversation, and colour to represent the emotional content of a statement or message (Gray, 1994). Stories should appeal to the interests of the person they are written for and avoid using words that may cause the person anxiety or distress.This book combines stick-figures with conversation symbols to illustrate what people say and think during conversations. Showing what people are thinking reinforces that others have independent thoughts―a concept that spectrum children don't intuitively understand. You can use just paper, pencils, crayons and markers, computer word processing applications, or you could use an app.

Comic strip conversations can help autistic people understand concepts that they find particularly difficult. The content and presentation of social stories should be appropriate to the person's age and level of understanding. The basic tools are paper and pencils, but you might also use crayons, coloured pencils and markers.Children can draw their own comic strips to show what they are thinking and feeling about events or people. Carol Gray combines stick-figures with conversation symbols to illustrate what people say and think during conversations. Creating or using a social story can help you to understand how the autistic person perceives different situations. Comic strip conversations use stick figures and symbols to represent social interactions and abstract aspects of conversation, and colour to represent the emotional content of a statement or message. Start with small talk (for example, talking about the weather) to get the person you are supporting familiar with drawing while talking and to mimic ordinary social interactions.
