If common sense is so common, why don't I have it? Come explore the invisible world of common sense and its often hilarious connection to real life! Comic Sense shows what's common - and what's comic - about sense. Nancy Mucklow, creator of the sensory team approach to sensory processing, uses comics to reveal the hidden patterns behind social reasoning. Instead of listing rules and blunders, Mucklow takes you behind the scenes to discover what everyone else seems to know. The result is a new way of looking at the social world. You'll learn: How to be aware - What people assume - What people expect - How to predict - How to prioritize - How to take action. With over 300 illustrations, Comic Sense is a unique and engaging book-an essential social skills tool for anyone who thinks in pictures.
