July 13, 2011 - PRLog -- With over 4 million children on the autism spectrum in USA itself, the need for teaching tools for these kids is very high.
Of all the five senses that the human race is blessed with, visual grasping seems to be a strong hold amongst autistic kids. These children often respond to books and visual cards as opposed to a verbal command. This break through has helped tremendously in helping children afflicted with this communication disorder to learn better.

Experts believe that notions like big, small, long, huge and the colors can get very difficult for a child to understand. These concepts change frequently since there is no specific quantum delegated to them and this can confuse any child, leave alone those on the spectrum. The need to maintain a regular flow of character when teaching these concepts is very important. If the main character of the book changes frequently the child on the spectrum is very likely to get confused. zYouSoft CEO, Samir Hanna Safar agrees that a constant in the form of the main character is essential and believes that the ‘Yellow Pig’ series launched by them recently will help in Autistic kids learning better.

Samir Hanna Safar believes that helping all children learn via books serving as a visual aid, has a very high percentage of success. Of course children on the spectrum no doubt grasp these concepts better since they seem blessed with a photogenic memory. ‘Seeing’ their favorite character repeated book after book allows them a sense of comfort and familiarity. This is also the reason why the company has decided to launch T shirts and toys based on the Yellow Pig, the central idea being to make the character a frequent visitor in the child’s world. This familiarity will help the kids to go along with the Yellow Pig into unforeseen areas with greater ease and thereby fewer panic attacks.  

With many children’s books to its credit, the Yellow Pig that the company has launched is serving as a great tool in helping children learn some rather difficult concepts. Created by Sodad, this character is able to guide the children through the maze of difficult to grasp concepts, with great ease. There are already about 10 books in the series and right from visits to the Zoo to finally going off to school, the Yellow Pig covers it all.

It is heartening to see the children's books industry churning out kids books keeping the illustration and text balance in mind and one is hopeful of a much better class of educations books for those 5 and under, as opposed to the fairy tales where step- mothers were cruel and a character lasted for only a single book. Today most educations books for kids follow a series and this helps the early reader learn better.
