Our Mission and Vision
Empowering professionals, parents and guardians caring for children with Autism Spectrum disorder or disabilities that include a communication and/or learning delay by providing a resource that is comprehensive, affordable and backed with evidence and research.
As a parent of a child with Autism I am aware of the expense involved in accessing early intervention.
I did a lot of research on early intervention and tried so many different methods to support my son and kept coming back to the research and evidence.
Visual learning is important for most individuals and is especially valuable in the case of children with Autism. Learn why this is important and more about visual learning
My goal was to create a product that was comprehensive and affordable for everyone.
I was able to find Flashcards, Autism resources online with pictures but I couldn’t find anything that included programs or instructions on how to use them or teach with them unless you bought additional products such as books.
I also found apps but nothing that can beat or replace a physical person sitting with the student and teaching. Learn why this is important and more about joint attention
So in consultation with Teachers, Pre-school Teachers, Psychologists, Aba Therapists, Speech Therapists and Students working with children with disabilities, The Flashcards was created.
The mission was to empower professionals, parents and guardians caring for children with Autism Spectrum disorder or disabilities that include a communication and/or learning delay by providing a resource that is comprehensive, affordable and backed with evidence and research.
The most effective teaching methods today for children with Autism have been derived within the science of ABA. ABA methods are supported by research and included among the national standards or best practices for Autism. It is also important to note that the techniques of ABA aren’t just for children with ASD, although it has the most established evidence for this population.
Put simply ABA is based on effective learning and teaching principles so we have included these programs and techniques with The Flashcards and Early Intervention programs. Learn more about what is ABA and why we included these programs
The Flashcards Autism Early Intervention program is different from any other resource as all cards form parts of programs, ABA programs that incorporate Speech, Occupational therapy (fine motor) and Basic Teaching methods.
All programs have been put together with simplicity in mind and are all individually colour coded to make it very easy to sort. To make it even easier more instructions about the programs are included on the 30 divider cards.
Originally designed for Autism Spectrum Disorder, The Flashcards now has teachers, child care centres, carers and parents using the kit to teach children that have learning and communication difficulties.
The Flashcards is being used with children that have Hearing Impairment, Cerebral Palsy, Downs Syndrome, Brain Injury and even adults after a Stroke.
