SOCIAL STORIES: Social stories and comic strip conversations can help autistic people develop greater social understanding and stay safe. Social storiesTM were created by Carol Gray in 1991. They are short descriptions of a particular situation, event or activity, which include specific information about what to expect in that situation and why.
The terms 'social story' and 'social stories' are trademarks originated and owned by Carol Gray.

VISUAL SUPPORTS: Visual supports can be used to communicate with people on the autism spectrum. They are adaptable, portable and can be used in most situations.
Visual supports can help to provide structure and routine, encourage independence, build confidence, improve understanding, avoid frustration and anxiety, and provide opportunities to interact with others. They can make communication physical and consistent, rather than fleeting and inconsistent like spoken words can be.
