The Conversation Train: A Visual Approach to Conversation for Children on the Autism Spectrum

Stacey Atkinson Senior nurse lecturer in learning disability nursing, School of Human and Health Sciences, University of Huddersfield

IN THIS book trains and train travel are metaphors for different aspects of conversation, which the author uses to encourage children with autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs) to communicate. Adults with ASD may be put off by the book’s several colourful pictures of model trains.
