These illustrated cards are ideal either as a fun activity resource or for using with people who interpret language literally, including those with Autistic Spectrum Disorders.

A flexible resource for individuals or groups of all ages, this resource is a new way of presenting idioms by visually reinforcing the implied meaning.
