B 97035B 97035 Comic Strip Conversations
Grade Lvl: T Author: Gray, Carol
Length: 39 Copyright: 1994

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 that 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?

By providing a CD and book now you can print as many strategies you want onto standard labels and flipbooks and save the formatted stickers in Word for your student. You can still print from formatted strategies in the included book. A popular tool, the previous book included actual stickers, making it expensive to print. This CD/book package is half the first version's price and more versatile! While originally developed for use with students with social cognitive learning challenges (Asperger's, high-functioning autism, ADHD, etc.), these strategies can easily be applied to any child who needs that strong visual reminder - a more powerful teacher than an adult's "nag." This CD/book package allows for a student to learn a strategy presented in the book, then the instructor sticks the strategy sticker in a flip notebook. The student carries the flipbook with him/her throughout the day. With the flipbook, the student can easily and discretely refer to the strategies s/he already learned to solve problems with independence. The result is fewer behavioral breakdowns and classroom disruptions, while teaching self-reliance and problem-solving anytime, anywhere. This is a great tool for a student who recognizes his/her weaknesses and is motivated to improve. This tool is not effective for students who either don't realize that they need improvement or who aren't motivated to help themselves. Enhanced strategies include those for: Asking for Help; Emotions and Problem Solving; Organization, Writing and Homework; Group Work; Social Thinking; Family Time - Home Strategies This innovative tool is best for 3rd grade to 12th grade students.

In this unprecedented book, Grandin delivers a report from the country of autism. Writing from the dual perspectives of a scientist and an autistic person, she tells us how that country is experienced by its inhabitants and how she managed to breach its boundaries to function in the outside world. What emerges in Thinking in Pictures is the document of an extraordinary human being, one who, in gracefully and lucidly bridging the gulf between her condition and our own, sheds light on the riddle of our common identity.
