My youngest daughter (9) has sensory processing issues, and she struggles with high sensitivity to sound. She used the Forbrain daily for 10 minutes per day. She would have worn it all day if I allowed her to, because she loves the clarity it gives her.
We used it during her daily reading lessons, and found that many sounds that were a struggle for her in the past were easier to hear and read (such as the “th” sound). This increased her confidence because she could tell when she was saying it right, rather than feeling unsure and hesitating, which often slowed down her reading. Some days she would wear it while we chatted or discussed a book we had read aloud together. Although her speech is not an issue requiring therapy, I did notice that immediately after putting on the headset her speech becomes much, much clearer. She absolutely loves using this product and is far more excited to complete her reading lessons while she is wearing it.
My 16 year-old daughter is a singer and decided to try the Forbrain during her vocal warm-up practice. She found that she was able to achieve perfect pitch on notes that were previously a struggle and that after consistent practice she was able to produce those sounds consistently without the help of the device. She doesn’t want to train without the Forbrain!
I had to give it a try too, out of curiosity, and also because I would love to improve my memory. I felt more awake and attentive during and after use, and found that I retained what I was reading better than I normally would. Since I suffer from a foggy brain often, I really enjoy the clarity.
