I love using comic strips for telling their stories when working with children. They can be used in so many ways both for you and the child.

You can use them:
*To sort out problems *To retell a complicated story *To organise something that has happened to them *To find out information about the child *To focus on thoughts and feelings *To help children who cannot write well to tell their story *To help children who cannot talk well to tell their story *To help children with social skills such as conversation and listening *To develop thinking skills *To inspire all children through their love of comics – it won’t feel like work! *To write social stories for children *To write therapeutic stories for children *To help autistic children understand non-verbal communication, especially emotions *To develop their imagination *To work with a partner or a team *To explain something to a child that is perhaps difficult to understand by words alone *To find out their wishes and dreams *To develop self-esteem *To recall past events *To show a timeline of their life *To learn new vocabulary *To develop drawing skills

I often use comic strips for telling their stories when children struggle to tell me a story about something. It might be a conflict on the playground or someone has done something they don’t like. Maybe a bullying incident or something that has happened at home.  It helps to get things in the right order.

I will personally draw the pictures (stick people) in the right order with the child telling me what to do and what each character is saying.  Where it happened? When it happened? The only questions I ask are questions like ‘What happened to begin with?’ ‘Then what happened?’ ‘What did ____ say?’ ‘What did you say?’ and I use speech bubbles.

When I have finished we go through and the child agrees that this actually happened. This is so much easier than the jumbled up stories you so often get.

This pack contains:

*15 portrait comic strips in colour *15 portrait comic strips in black and white *15 landscape comic strips in colour *15 landscape comic strips in black and white *112 question prompts *10 portrait/landscape boxes in colour *10 portrait/landscape boxes in black and white *Lots of speech bubbles

"Fantastic support for practitioners with plenty of advice and ideas"
