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.
Featuring thirty-eight commonly-used idioms and metaphors, each pair of cards shows scenarios that demonstrate both the literal interpretation and the implied meaning.
Match up the literal and non-literal meanings to ask ‘What do we really mean?’
Idioms include: ‘Let the cat out of the bag’; ‘Stand up for yourself’; ‘Piece of cake’; ‘It cost an arm and a leg’; ‘Green fingers’; ‘See eye to eye’; ‘Feeling blue’.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.
Eighty cards illustrating forty idioms; one half of the pair showing the literal meaning, the other the implied meaning
