Is Your Family Touched by Autism?

Very possibly.
Facts and figures about autism:
  • 1 in 150 children are diagnosed with autism;
  • A new case of autism is diagnosed nearly every 20 minutes;
  • Autism receives less than 5% of the public funding contributed each year to fight all major childhood diseases;
  • There will be more cases of Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosed each year than all major childhood diseases combined.
Discovery Toys can help. For children with autism, the diversity and breadth of learning opportunities offered by DISCOVERY TOYS® products supports the basic skill needs of the child with autism and builds bridges to the next skill level, regardless of the child’s age. Dr. Patricia Krantz, Ph.D., Executive Director of PCDI, attests to the value of the company’s playthings in treatment programs. “Toys are a vital component of many intervention programs! Children with autism learn best when learning is wrapped up as fun! We have incorporated DISCOVERY TOYS® products into our teaching strategies for many years.” This collection of product, along with resources to guide parents in selecting the right toys and understanding how to use them, is now available directly to families of children with Autism for use in the home.
