An introduction to Social Stories and Comic Strip Conversations
Our specialist Speech and Language Therapist, Fiona Johnstone will be giving a workshop on Social Stories and Comic Strip Conversations at Toby House on Friday June 9, 2017 from 10 am till 12 noon.
Social Stories are an effective tool to address issues of social misunderstanding and confusion. They inform, reassure, support and praise children who often struggle to make sense of the world around them. They can help increase social understanding. Not just for the person with autism, but also for the person writing the story. Writing a social story is a chance to see the world through the eyes of someone with ASD.
Comic Strip Conversations represent conversations in a visual way. They can show the things that are said in an interaction, how others may feel and what intentions people may have. They can help with, understanding concepts, planning for situations in the future which may be causing anxiety or concern, giving an explanation about an event or situation.
