Auti: Toy Designed for Autistic Children

Oct 13, 2011
Children diagnosed with autism often have problems communicating with others, which becomes one of the biggest challenges for a child and his parents.

Helen Andreae, a designer from New Zealand, has come up with the idea of creating special toy for children with autism after she noticed from her friend's autistic child that kids with autism experience difficulties while controlling their voice and body movements . The interactive toy called Auti was designed to overcome those difficulties and teach a child positive interactions.

The Auti is equipped with sensors that respond to touch and sound, shutting down when a child shows negative behavior patterns, such as screaming, and shows positive reaction to positive behavior, such as stroking and soft speaking.

The toy is still a prototype, but its developer says that its animal-like appearance will appeal to children with various forms of autism.

I really don't mean this <a href="http://oldazdvlj.com">netgiavely</a> but are these all 5 week pictures? I feel like I should be showing more at 8.5 weeks (and I'm no small woman). Are you finding its bloat or actual showing ?

The reason some woman show<a href="http://watiey.com"> borefe</a> others is because a lot of us have had children previously, our muscles are not as taught as first timers!! Every woman has a different shape and size. Just because some of you feel that they shouldn't be showing as soon as they are doesn't mean that we are just bloated or were bigger to begin with. The point of posting all of these pics are to share how we are changing in THIS pregnancy, its exciting to see and to share with others. So please keep your negative comments to yourself. If you are pregnant and looking at this then you should know that a lot of us are very selfconcious this is the last place we should be judged as we are all mothers and should know the changes that our bodies are going to be going through. Lets be encouriging to each other not negative

Wow I am so delighted that you have made a DVD and look so forwrad to watching it.When I read your book the first time I thought oh my god it's all about my daughter Hannah. We share this book with all our volunteers and treasure it so much. Other parents that have read it say exactly the same thing and I think all parents should read it even if their kids don't have Autism just so they have an insight into the Autistic world. We have attended start up and max impact and due to attend new frontiers in November and so so busy fundraising to get Hannah our nearly 7 year old to an intensive hopefully next year. We have 6 children 4 typically developing and 2 with Autism. Our other daughter Xarie who is 5 is progressing with just a sprinkle of Son-rise dust where as Hannah needs alot more. We run our program 6 days per week and she attends special school just one day each week (more to satisfy the education department than anything else). I so look forwrad to receiving this DVD and the phone call and thankyou so much for offering a discount through facebook, as we need all the assistance we can get.Thanks again ..Keep up the good work Love Lyndall & family xxx
