The use of Comic Strip Conversations to support pupils with ASC

  • From Carol Gray's Comic strip conversations, 1994
  • 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.

By seeing the different elements of a conversation presented visually, some of the more abstract aspects of social communication (such as recognising the feelings of others) are made more 'concrete' and are therefore easier to understand. 

Comic strip conversations can also offer an insight into how an autistic person perceives a situation.
