Testimonials

— Our Community Says

"Hi, just wanted to share that I really appreciate you partnering with specific companies and organizations, like Trader Joe's, museums, etc. As an autistic adult who loves to travel but gets easily overwhelmed in busy, unfamiliar spaces, it's really helpful to have a guide to how the space works and what I can expect. Hope to see more locations like that added. It would be super helpful if the location-specific cards on the app also included maps of the space and where key points (e.g., entrance, bathrooms) were located."

Anonymous via web chat

"I follow steps in MagnusCards to get my groceries and use the check-out system, to go through the steps and stay on track."

Bridgette, MagnusCards user

"My son loves MagnusCards! When I saw the CIBC Card Decks, I immediately thought this is what he needs next."

Debbie, a mother of an autistic young adult

"There is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone buy-in and begin finding a whole new level of independence…especially when nobody thought they would ever achieve it. It truly bridges the gap between disability and ability. Your product is one of the absolute best I’ve ever seen, and I will definitely be passing it on."

Jason, Personal Agent, Creative Supports Inc.

“I just used the MagnusCards Pearson Airport set. It was INCREDIBLY helpful and changed what would have been a very stressful experience into a super smooth one!”

Nat Geffen, Caregiver

“My daughter has been able to go through her day with different places to go. It’s so incredibly user-friendly. I think for a lot of families, it’s going to be a huge benefit.”

Susan, a mother of an autistic child
