Comic Strip Conversations

  • Comic Strip Conversations are another technique developed by Carol Gray (1994) to assist individuals with Autistic Spectrum Disorders to 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 visually presented, some of the abstract aspects of social communication (e.g. recognizing the feelings and intentions of others) are made more concrete and are therefore easier to understand.

  • Comic Strip Conversations can also provide insight into the individual with Autistic Spectrum Disorders perception of a particular situation.
