Everyone on the autism spectrum is individual and will have their own likes/dislikes and interests. You can use these question cards to explore emotions, behaviour and actions, social interaction, communication, confidence and self esteem.
Use these cards to help individuals on the spectrum to consider how they react and respond to situations and support them to think about situations from a different perspective.
Facilitate conversations to gain a better understanding and insight into the life of the individual on the spectrum.
The cards are useful for all people on the autism spectrum particularly for those who are high functioning and have the ability to communicate verbally. The cards are appropriate for all ages including children and young people.
