Customer Spotlight: Ariel and Icker

Despite the wild ride towards the end of the school year, Jennifer, educator and mom of two, took some time to chat with me about her family’s experience with NeuroPlus. Jennifer is an adoptive mom of two children: an 11 year old girl Ariel and 7 year old boy Icker. They’ve both struggled with attention issues and have been diagnosed with ADD, which led Jennifer to look for help.

Jennifer knew that she was willing to try anything to help her family. “Being an educator, I’ve always looked at research based solutions to try to help my children.” Jennifer started with sensory training and worked with occupational therapists, among other therapies. Eventually she started medication with her daughter.

Never satisfied, Jennifer continued to look for other solutions for her family when she discovered NeuroPlus online. “The research was great, and the reviews were great,” said Jennifer, “so I thought, ‘Well, we’ll give it a try,’ and it really seems to be helping!”

Both Ariel and Icker use NeuroPlus as a part of their daily schedule to make sure they get make time for it. After outdoor playtime to unplug from school, dinner, and homework, Jennifer allows her children some screen time as the family hangs out together. “They’re required to play 20 minutes of NeuroPlus before they can play their other games,” Jennifer explains.

Since training, Jennifer’s noticed a dramatic difference in life at home.

Ariel is medicated on school days, but just in time for homework, that medication has worn off, making homework time a struggle for the family. Previously, the homework that was meant to take 15 to 25 minutes was taking hours. Since training with NeuroPlus, Jennifer shared, “Ariel is able to complete her homework in a reasonable amount of time to be successful.”

Meanwhile, Icker struggled with reading. Since his attention training began “He seems to be enjoying reading a little bit more and he’s getting better at it,” Jennifer said. “I think it’s all due to their training.”

Reflecting on her children’s experience so far, Jennifer observed, “My children are old enough that once their bodies actually start to focus, they know how that feels. It makes them more alert.” She continued, “The sad thing is that attention isn’t a skill that you can teach. I can’t tell my children, ‘This is how you focus.’ It was something the medicine was doing for them, but NeuroPlus has given them the opportunity to know what that feels like.”

Customer Spotlight: Kate

We recently spoke with Christian, a father of 2nd grader Kate, who started training with NeuroPlus at the beginning of the summer.

“This system just made sense,” mentioned Christian, when asked about why he was initially interested in NeuroPlus. “My daughter was already playing a lot of games on the phone and tablet.” In a time where devices rule, it was appealing to Christian to let his daughter play a game and practice the skills that would help her excel. “It’s packaged well and has all the components that you’d need.”

Kate’s been engaged in training, and he’s already started to see changes in Kate’s focus and impulse control. At the end of the last school year, Kate could do about 12 addition or subtraction problems in 1 minute, getting distracted and having difficulty focusing on the task in front of her. Christian set up a program with Kate this summer, training with the NeuroPlus games and keeping her math skills sharp, they’ve already seen dramatic improvements.

“I can say that we’ve seen nearly 100% improvement on this task. I just tested my daughter and she was able to complete 22 problems in 60 seconds,” Christian said.

Kate’s just started the new school year and Christian has high hopes that continued training with NeuroPlus will help Kate permanently stop using the medication to help her focus. “She’s already saying, ‘I don’t need the medicine,’ and I hope we can finally end that soon.”

We asked Christian if he’s tried out the games at all. “Yes, and they’re no joke,” Christian laughs. “The games let you know when you’re distracted and losing focus, but they’re fun. I’m happy we found NeuroPlus.”

We’re excited to follow Kate’s growth in the new school year! If you’re interested in learning how to train your focus while playing a game, you can learn more at our website, or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
