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, Asperger's, 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.
