Little Pilgrims Launches Educational DVDs for Children with Autism
Date:11/27/2007

Created by parents, these DVDs, companion booklets and Littlepilgrims.com

offer new educational tools and information

ELLINGTON, Conn., Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Littlepilgrims.com and the Little Pilgrims DVD Series and Companion Booklets launches today.

Little Pilgrims educational products are designed for children on the autistic spectrum by parents of children on the autistic spectrum.

Founder David Desrocher, a father of two boys with spectrum disorders, worked with friends, family, teachers and therapists to create Little Pilgrims. Desrocher became intrigued when he read that two Indiana University studies showed videos could help children with autism develop new skills.

Unlike the fast-paced, frenetic videos previously available, this series of DVDs was created with autistic children's' needs specifically in mind. The series, available at Littlepilgrims.com, includes: Labeling: Colors, Labeling: The Home and Let's Go to the Restaurant: Modeling Restaurant Behavior.

"This series of DVDs and companion booklets is amazing. I've wanted something like this for the children in my program for a long time," said Joe McLaughlin, director of a birth-to-three program in Connecticut who has been working with autistic individuals for 30-plus years. "I have seen children with little prior language start labeling their colors after watching the videos."

Desrocher's journey began with a quest to teach his youngest son colors. Labeling: Colors slows down the frenetic pace common among educational DVDs created for typical children. The relaxed, repetitive pace of the Labeling: Colors allows children to focus on one subject at a time. The "Object Isolation Method" fades out all other distractions placing the object the child should be focusing on front and center.

Labeling: The Home gives kids a methodical tour of the rooms within the home and the objects commonly found within them. Let's Go to the Restaurant: Modeling Restaurant Behavior shows typical restaurant situations and the appropriate behaviors for those situations. McLaughlin's expert commentary at the DVD's conclusion aids parents in using these tools.

To help bridge what children see on the videos and what they see in the home, at a restaurant and throughout their everyday lives, the Little Pilgrims DVD Companion Booklets were developed. Parents are urged to place pictures of related objects and places from their children's lives into the books.

Littlepilgrims.com was designed by Moveo Integrated Branding, Oakbrook Terrace, Ill.
