We are incredibly proud to introduce a very special Therapeutic Resources – The Tell me a Story cards.
The highest you ever climbed! – The furthest you ever swam! – The fastest you ever ran!
Children love stories, especially true stories describing adventure and emotional extremes. Often they will ask to hear our stories but how often do they get to tell theirs?
The TMAS cards invite young people to recall and retell their own memorable moments of extremity (Luckiest! Loneliest! Bravest!), as they rediscover a sense of pride in their own achievements. The story topics have been carefully chosen to appeal to young storytellers, with the capacity to engage listeners of all ages.
The TMAS cards are a useful tool for parents and professionals working with young people to facilitate communication, highlight strengths, give praise and boost self-esteem.
The TMAS collection is designed for young people and adults, (aged 6 years and above). We all have stories to tell and the TMAS cards provide a forum for all people to share their experiences, children and adults alike. The cards have been tried and tested with individuals and small groups, throughout a number of different contexts.
We are proud to announce the publication of our first therapeutic resource : The Just Like When cards.This is a limited first edition featuring 18 illustrations on tactile cards with a “Make Your Own” JLW card kit and instruction manual for parents, teachers and therapists. Resources are available now from our online shop!
See some examples below:
The Just Like When Cards (JLW) are one our favourite innovations. Developed over 15 years and based on countless experiences as told to us by our young clients, the JLW Cards depict personal and sensitive topics which have been designed to help young people explore their own experiences and emotions.
We love therapeutic resources and go to great lengths to personally develop and produce our hand-packed kits. We are committed to providing parents and professionals around the world with creative and effective therapeutic tools that are tried, tested and loved in classrooms, clinics and lounge rooms around the globe.
We are constantly inspired by the young clients who visit us at Quirky Kid HQ and draw on their influences when developing our products. Similarly, we would love to hear about your experiences with our materials.
We are delighted to introduce our new resource – The FACE IT Cards.
The FACE IT collection always makes an impression! This set of thirty-five (35) hand-drawn cards, depicting a wide range of facial expressions, are designed to engage children and adults from diverse social and cultural backgrounds as well as those on the Autism spectrum or with other special needs.
Parents, teachers and therapists will find the FACE IT cards are an exceptional resource to increase communication in the home, school, clinic or community setting.
Effectively used with both individuals and groups, the FACE IT cards allow participants the option of ‘pointing out’ their emotions to increase understanding, problem-solving and empathy when dialogue is difficult.
Leonardo Rocker, the Quirky Kid Practice Manager, will be attending the Frankfurt book fair, in Germany, from the 14th to 18th of October 2009 as a trade visitor. This is a major step towards promoting and expanding our therapeutic resources.
We aim to promote our new therapeutic resources for children as well as explore new tendencies in print and digital media. We have already set several meetings with interested parties to explore rights acquisition and sale.
Our aim as a publishing house is to combine our clinical expertise with our innovations in effective therapeutic resources to ensure parents and teachers have the best materials to support children and adolescents. We also aim to share our services and environmentally sound resource packs to both developed and developing countries with ongoing support and communication (Our team love opportunities for remote travel!).
We aim to develop the most sought after and effective therapeutic resources in the world.
