Thousands of Picture Cards
Stages Learning Materials grew from a single set of picture cards... the Language Builder Picture Noun Cards. Our flashcard line grew to include occupations, emotions, verbs, sequencing, opposites, prepositions and more.
More than 90% of our pictures were taken specifically for our card sets, and we utilize stock images as little as possible. Why is this important? Because we take our own images, we can control the subjects, backgrounds, cropping and other visual features, assuring they are appropriate to the unique needs of students on the autism spectrum.
We do utilize stock images when we need to. It turns out that getting a picture of an astronaut in space is a bit difficult.
When we use stock images, we go to great lengths to curate the best images, and we painstakingly edit the images, to crop out confusing backgrounds and make the subject matter as clear as possible.
ARIS includes all of the flashcard sets in our popular Language Builder Picture Card Series.
