Welcome to CforCat – a platform dedicated to the Early Childhood Development. Cforcat was started with the idea of developing Organic, Safe and Eco-friendly products that could help in the development skills for Newborn, Toddlers and Preschoolers. Our toys are based on the Theory of Multiple Intelligence by Howard Gardner.
The theory proposes eight different intelligences to account for a broader range of human potential in children and adults. These intelligences are Linguistic intelligence (“word smart”), Logical-mathematical intelligence (“number/reasoning smart”), Spatial intelligence (“picture smart”), Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence (“body smart”), Musical intelligence (“music smart”), Interpersonal intelligence (“people smart”), Intrapersonal intelligence (“self smart”) and Naturalist intelligence (“nature smart”).
We had our daughter two years back and she was diagnosed with Myoclonic Seizure when she was 8 months old. It was then that we were exposed to the world of Early Childhood Development. As much as we wanted to help her as parents, our knowledge in the field was limited. I started realizing that there was a huge gap in terms of how children develop and how they are expected to. We keep saying “Every Child is Unique” and yet we keep generalizing their development. The toys available in the market didn’t help either, they would all be marked 0-6 months, 1-2 years etc. Even though I knew which skills she needed help in, I didn’t know what kind of toys would help her. She had trouble with Linguistic Skills so I started designing Flash Cards. After multiple iteration of design and development, they became one of her most favorite toys. I noticed a great deal of improvement in her language which made me start working on the idea CforCat.
The need of being a part of my daughter’s development formed the cornerstone for CforCat.
