Publisher Comments:

Carol Gray 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 spectrum children don't intuitively understand. Children can also recognize that, although people say one thing, they may think something quite different - another concept foreign to "concrete-thinking" children. Children can draw their own "comic strips" to show what they are thinking and feeling about events or people. Different colors can represent different states of mind. These deceptively simple comic strips can reveal as well as convey quite a lot of substantive information.
 
The author delves into topics such as:
  • What is a Comic Strip Conversation?
  • The Comic Strip Symbols Dictionary
  • Drawing “small talk"
  • Drawing about a given situation
  • Drawing about an upcoming situation
  • Feelings and COLOR

Synopsis:

A comic strip conversation incorporates the use of simple drawings to illustrate the interaction which comprises the quick exchange of information conversation entails. It is an effective tool for parents and professionals working with students with autism and other developmental disabilities because it creates a visual component to an abstract subject they find complex and often perplexing. Comic Strip Conversations identifies what people say and do, emphasizing also what people may be thinking. It's a small book with a big impact.

Synopsis:

A comic strip conversation is a conversation between two or more people that incorporates the use of simple drawings. These drawings illustrate the dynamics of communication, providing support to individuals who struggle with the quick exchange of information in a conversation. This book has become a staple for parents and professionals working with students with autism and other developmental disabilities. The visual supports provide not only concrete social cues, but also can improve students' understanding of the more abstract components of conversation. It's short and sweet, easy to implement, and fun to work with.
