April is National Autism Awareness Month and a Boca Raton-based Advertising agency is putting its money where its mouth is. Pinnacle Advertising, in conjunction with Autism Education and Behavior Training Services, is donating educational videos specifically designed to help parents and educators overcome the everyday challenges of raising and/or teaching a child with autism. These videos show how to overcome picky eating, how to expand a child’s interests, and so much more.
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the prevalence of autism has risen to 1 in every 68 births in the United Sates and almost 1 in 54 boys,” said Pinnacle President & CEO, Peter Gary. “Moreover, the lifetime cost of caring for a child with autism ranges from $3.5 million to $5 million and this country is facing almost $90 billion in costs for autism. While there is no cure for autism, studies show that early diagnosis and intervention lead to significantly improved outcomes; these videos offer parents and teachers an opportunity to master techniques usually reserved for professional therapists.”
Gary said that anyone can get the free videos, which traditionally sell for $39.99 each by going to http://pa-mg.com/autism
There are a total of 8 videos available at no cost:
• Overcoming Irrational Fears
• Creating a Willing Learner
• Making Friends
• Teaching Kids to Talk
• Getting Kids to Eat
• Expanding Interests & Activities
• Teaching Sign Language to Non-Vocal Children
• Selecting Alternative Communication
Developed in collaboration with Thomas M. Caffrey, M.Ed., BCBA, the educational videos require no prior training. Powerful real-life video coupled with Tom’s knack for talking to the viewer instead of at the viewer, make for interesting, easy-to-understand training. These modules bring the techniques to life and show how they are within reach of all professionals, parents and caregivers alike. Tom will be your partner every step of the way.
If you are the least bit concerned that your child or student may be on the autism spectrum, here are some of the signs to look for; lack of or delay in spoken language, repetitive use of language and/or motor mannerisms (e.g., hand-flapping, twirling objects), little or no eye contact, lack of interest in peer relationships, lack of spontaneous or make-believe play and persistent fixation on parts of objects.
“If you are affected by autism in any way, I urge you to take advantage of this offer,” stressed Gary. “We are proud to provide much needed autism educational materials to our community during National Autism Awareness Month.”
