Changing Media Development
- We are committed to helping people with autism and other learning disabilities.
- We put a lot of time and effort into making products that help the people who need them - and we design them to be fun and engaging as well.
- Everything we do is based on best scientific practice and is developed in conjunction with world experts in their fields.
When you buy The Transporters DVD Pack, you know that it comes with our commitment:
- episodes and interactive quizzes have been developed with the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University;
- the series has been thoroughly tested on children with autism throughout its development so we can learn from their feedback;
- 25 % of any profits from the sale of The Transporters DVD Pack go to further research and autism charities.
We actively encourage researchers to use The Transporters in their work in order to further the understanding of autism. Researchers can request permission to use the series.
