RIDGEWOOD, N.J., March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Goosie, LLC announced today that they will be participating in the celebration of Autism Awareness Month throughout the month of April with a series of press releases and media coverage supporting families of autistic children with special discounts. Goosie is the market leader for custom flash cards, called Goosie Cards(R). Goosie Cards are created online at http://www.goosiecards.com by uploading personal photos and adding text to customize flash cards.
The launch of Goosie Cards triggered an overwhelming response from parents, teachers and medical professionals in the autism community. Since Goosie Cards can be customized with personal photos and text to fit the needs of each specific child, they have become powerful teaching tools for autistic children. The benefit of Goosie Cards is that parents and teachers have the flexibility to teach a child about their world around them, exactly as it is. This direct connection to real, visual objects enables autistic children to easily associate words with the corresponding object, and therefore making it easier to communicate.
Goosie proudly supports this incredible community across all levels -- NJCOSAC, Autism Walks, parents, schools and institutions. Goosie's commitment to parents is to continually develop the Goosie(R) Gallery, which holds additional stock photos, to help parents customize their cards at no additional cost. The company's ultimate goal is to provide these parents with an improved picture system to better communicate with their children.
Goosie also added a new enhancement to the web site called Teaching Tools (http://www.goosiecards.com/TeachingTools.aspx). "The Teaching Tools section was designed to help guide every parent through the educational benefits of Goosie Cards," said Jennifer Marchetti, founder and CEO of Goosie. "They are a creative approach to teaching communication through the use of personal photos -- and their teaching possibilities are endless. They can be used by every parent to fit every child's need."
"Whether you are a parent of an autistic child or know someone that is, we are all affected by the growing rate of autism in our country," said Jennifer Marchetti. "We are so excited to offer a discount program to these families in hopes that we can provide some relief in price, while providing one of the most advanced, communication learning systems. The wonderful thing about Goosie Cards is that they are for every child. Regardless of where a child is developmentally, everyone can be part of the Goosie family."
