You can see ACER’s announcement about Quirky Kid Resources below:

The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) is proud to announce a formal distribution partnership with Quirky Kid Resources. ACER has recently acquired the rights to distribute the beautiful range of cards and other resources that have been designed and published by the Quirky Kid team.

Eirini Lammi, ACER psychology consultant was extremely impressed with the uniqueness of the Quirky Kid Resources and the instant appeal they have with people working with children and adolescents in schools, health services and the wider community.

The value of these cards is in the exceptional care and thought taken to capture a practical and distinctive range of feelings and emotions that will have instant appeal to children and adolescents. Each card is powerful and thought provoking that will stimulate discussion and conversation.

These resources are certainly one of a kind. Nothing on the market comes close to the value of these resources in working with children and adolescents. Recent customer comments from an ACER Institute Seminar include, “these cards are beautiful” and “I’ve never seen anything like them.”

The Tell Me a Story cards

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 delighted to introduce our new resource.

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.

We hope you enjoy using them as much as we do!
