Social Stories

These comic strips were done in order to explain everyday situations to kids on the Autistic spectrum, some of them (such as the battery one) were done to prevent potentially hazardous behaviour. Thankfully they worked well and the battery chewing stopped immediately.

Other comics, such as the William the Wizard Engine one were attempts to assist the learning of communication skills in order to help facillitate friendships and deal with misunderstandings in a humorous way.

It’s quite an interesting process to identify an area in which there’s either a conflict or other obstruction to learning. Then to try to break it down into a logical comic strip.
