NICOSIA, Cyprus, Dec. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Leading company Upbility Publications LTD has unveiled helpful and ready-to-use therapy materials for children on the autism spectrum.
“Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disorder that frequently turns the learning of basic and complex skills into a challenge. That’s where Upbility Publications LTD comes into the picture,” says company founder Dimitris Nikolopoulos.
Upbility.net leads the charge in providing the necessary tools and autism therapy materials to provide support in the areas of behaviour, language development, communication, social skills, and so much more. It offers an entire set of autism resources, picture cards and worksheets that can be used by families and specialists alike, either at home or in the classroom.
For example, the Picture Cards game is an easy-to-use intervention tool to build students’ ability to identify similarities and differences between objects. Brimming with full-colour pictures and 240 targeted questions, it aims to boost students’ critical thinking and categorisation skills while keeping them eager to learn.
The pack includes 60 printable double-sided picture cards and three suggestions for activities with the use of two special dice. It also includes a part that is specially designed for tablets so that the cards can also be used autonomously.
On the other hand, Upbility’s new series of card-based activities entitled “Building Social Skills” provides a fabulous set of fun and engaging activities to help learners talk about the social situations they find challenging or confusing and open up to express how they understand their own and others’ feelings. Upbility has selected a number of real situations at school, at home and during outdoor activities, and situations geared mainly towards emotional understanding. The four eBooks pack comprises 240 double-sided printable cards and three suggestions for activities.
The autism resources published by Upbility.net have been designed by highly qualified and experienced professionals in a way to be perfectly tailored to their needs. Dimitris assures the company has made sure they are tested and renewed on an ongoing basis.

Autistic people have fought the inclusion of ABA in therapy for us since before Autism Speaks, and other non-Autistic-led autism organizations, started lobbying legislation to get it covered by insurances and Medicaid.
ABA is a myth originally sold to parents that it would keep their Autistic child out of an institution. Today, parents are told that with early intervention therapy their child will either be less Autistic or no longer Autistic by elementary school, and can be mainstreamed in typical education classes. ABA is very expensive to pay out of pocket. Essentially, Autism Speaks has justified the big price tag up front will offset the overall burden on resources for an Autistic’s lifetime. The recommendation for this therapy is 40 hours a week for children and toddlers.
The original study that showed the success rate of ABA to be at 50% has never been replicated. In fact, the study of ABA by United States Department of Defense was denounced as a failure. Not just once, but multiple times. Simply stated: ABA doesn’t work. In study after repeated study: ABA (conversion therapy) doesn’t work.
What more recent studies do show: Autistics who experienced ABA therapy are at high risk to develop PTSD and other lifelong trauma-related conditions. Historically, the autism organizations promoting ABA as a cure or solution have silenced Autistic advocates’ opposition. ABA is also known as gay conversion therapy.
The ‘cure’ for Autistics not born yet is the prevention of birth.
The ‘cure’ is a choice to terminate a pregnancy based on ‘autism risk.’ The cure is abortion. This is the same ‘cure’ society has for Down Syndrome.
This is eugenics 2021. Instead of killing Autistics and disabled children in gas chambers or ‘mercy killings’ like in Aktion T4, it’ll happen at the doctor’s office, quietly, one Autistic baby at a time. Different approaches yes, but still eugenics and the extinction of an entire minority group of people.
Fact: You can’t cure Autistics from being Autistic.
Fact: You can’t recover an Autistic from being Autistic.
Fact: You can groom an Autistic to mask and hide their traits. Somewhat. … however, this comes at the expense of the Autistic child, promotes Autistic Burnout (this should not be confused with typical burnout, Autistic Burnout can kill Autistics), and places the Autistic child at high risk for PTSD and other lifelong trauma-related conditions.
[Note: Autism is NOT a disease, but a neurodevelopmental difference and disability.]
Fact: Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism.
