How MagnusCards has changed lives
Shelley is the mother of an 18-year-old son with Down Syndrome and learning delays. One of Shelley’s biggest concerns is teaching her children how to write checks, use debit and credit cards, and how to budget.
MagnusCards and CIBC partnered to create card decks that provide a step-by-step guide for depositing a check, counting money, buying something with money, saving money for something special, and offering information on prepaid cards.
MagnusCards are used to:
- Practice and prepare for activities beforehand, to reduce anxiety
- Follow along and re-enact with instructions in real-time, to complete activities with confidence
- Structure and encourage independence in daily routines around the home (great for caregivers)
- Support individual and group learning during community outings (great for teachers)
Life skills companion and guide.
Magnus (Mag'nŭs) adj : Great. Magnus was designed by and for the community to be a revolutionary guide, teacher, and assistant for those with cognitive disabilities.
