Illustrated Interactions That Teach Conversation Skills To Students With Autism And Related Disorders 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 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.
