Happy New Year! I can’t think of a better way to start of the new year than with a giveaway! Yay!!!
I am thrilled to be giving away a set of 10 photoflash-cards that you will be able to personalize from Goosie Cards to 3 of my fabulous readers! Goosie ships internationally so this is open to ALL of my readers!! When Jennifer, the founder of Goosie Cards, contacted me about doing a giveaway this is what she had to say about the cards: “Our cards are universal and for all children. They are based on the basic principle of visual learning: the first method by which we all learn.” I don’t know about you, but Skylar is totally a visual learner as are many of the children that fall on the autism spectrum.
I immediately went to her website to check out what they had to offer. I loved the way they looked on-line but knew that I wanted to have a set in my hands so that I could see the quality of not only the pictures, but the quality of the cards as well. Well let me tell you, these cards are REALLY AWESOME! These are a great educational tool for all children, but I especially loved the therapeutic aspects that these cards offer for children with special needs (sequencing, behavior cards, emotions, etc.). Years ago when we started ABA with Skylar, we purchased a box of cards to use in our various programs. She also had a set of them at school. Oh what I would have given to have cards that were personalized with familiar faces and words to use for her.

I chose to make a complete alphabet set for my niece, Sam, who is a 2 1/2 year old neurotypical child. The process was pretty simple. Upload the pictures on-line, drag and drop the picture into the card and add the text (up to 5 lines for each card).
I had my cards hole punched so that they could be kept together on a ring. She opened her cards on Christmas Eve and absolutely LOVED them. I loved watching her play with the cards and say the names of the people as she saw them.
