Yesterday, one of the wonderful special education teachers I work with shared this wonderful website called ToonDoo.  This site is GREAT and FREE!  I have had so much fun playing around with it for the last couple minutes...okay hours.  It's basically a site to create your own comic strips.  But, for us SLPs, it is a great site to create social stories, sequencing activities, and even retelling/narrative activities.  Not only is it great for us to make materials, but it is a great (and fun) tool for the kids to engage in!

This is a screenshot of a social story I had worked on:

This website is great because you can pick from a high range of characters, change their facial expression and their posture.  You can also pick from different backgrounds, props, and speech bubbles.  One of the features I like most is that you can put your own pictures in there!  So instead of having a cartoon depict a social story, you can add a picture of the actual student!  They also have different cartoon strip formats, this is just an example of the four box plot.  

You can also create your own characters.  Below I have made my husband doing the Blue Steele look.

You do have to register to use the site, but no fee!  So check it out!
