Good communication and social skills are as important as reading, writing, and arithmetic for a developing mind. Comics for Social and Communicative Behavior is a book designed to help kids develop these skills in an engaging and developmentally appropriate way. Simple, accessible language and art make this volume highly accessible even to struggling readers, and the comic-based format is designed to engage and educate with clarity. Written by Vera Bernard-Opitz, a psychotherapist and behavior therapist who has assessed and treated over 1000 children with autism around the world.
This book features over 130 comics showing common everyday scenarios. These scenarios guide the reader through a simple problem they may face, and how best to approach the situation. These scenarios and exercises target eight vital, long-term skills: reliability, teamwork, self-control, empathy, and communication. Readers are encouraged to apply these skills in their own life, with the goal of improving quality of life and strengthening their relationships at home, at school, and in future work settings.
