Review: Forbrain

Forbrain Sound for Life LTD
Issac is 10 years old and has struggled most of his life with speech delays.  He's been though to have auditory processing  as well as we've had reading difficulties. The older he's gotten we've seen more and more memory issues as well as him having trouble paying attention.  We've done speech and occupational therapies off and on for most of his life.  I recently saw Forbrain by Sound for Life LTD and was really interested in this for Issac. The website states that  Forbrain's dynamic filter trains the brain to be more attentive improving not only attention but auditory processing and sensory integration.  Forbrain helps people to improve speech fluency, pronunciation, sound discrimination and rhythm, for clearer and more effective communication.Forbrain helps people to improve short term memory, which impacts such skills as reading, writing and even chatting.  These are all things that I thought were right inline with Issac.  Depending on the age of the person using Forbrain as little as 10 minutes a day is needed.  It's recommended to use Forbrain for 10 weeks to really see some improvement. After that you can take a break, do another session or just use it when you have something special in the works that needs extra preparation.  



I showed Issac the website and he thought the headset looked like something a spy would wear. I explained to him that it might look like something to play with, but that wasn't the intended purpose. We watched the VIDEO together for him to get a better idea of the intended purpose for using Forbrain.  I told him we had to commit to wearing it daily and for several months.  When the package arrived he was so excited that you would have thought it was his birthday (LOL) I let him open the box and he was excited that it came with a "cool case." I was excited because the case was sturdy and I knew would help protect the headset from my child.  He immediately tried it on and we read the information.  He charged it and we got started the next day.

The first few days we tried a few different things.  We did spelling words out loud, he read out loud to himself and we worked on his play lines.  He's in a Christmas play for his drama program and received 19 lines this time. That is the most lines he's had out of all the years he's been doing drama. I was a little nervous because he always memorizes his lines, but often he forgets bits and pieces of them. I was worried that he might not be able to memorize all 19. He suggested that he wear the headset while practicing his lines, so that's what we did.  I noticed early on that he seemed to be getting his lines pretty quickly.  I didn't say anything to him and we just kept practicing. His drama teacher told him last week that he was doing a really good job with his lines. He told me that night while we were practicing that he couldn't believe how quickly he'd learned his lines. He told me there were 2 that he's not got 100% and they are at the end. He told me he wasn't sure he was going to be able to memorize all 19 lines, but he feels he's got them memorized.  The only thing we've done different this time in working on lines is for him to wear the Forbrain

I feel like this product has definately been helpful for Issac and we will continue to use it and see what other improvements we see.  I'm not saying this product will take away any and all issues Issac has, but it's a tool to help him get through his daily activities a little easier.  Check out their social media sites as well as see how the other members of the crew used their Forbrain and what improvements they saw.

    1. Do you remember at Dymond when they told us about a headset the kids could wear daily to try and help them? I remember we both wanted to try it, but neither of us ever did. I immediately thought of that when I saw this review. It helped that Issac thought he looked like a spy when wearing it :)

Review: CTCMath

When your a homeschooling parent the topic of which curriculum to use comes up quite often. The subject that I've heard discussed the most is math.  One of the names I've heard over and over again is CTCMath.  We were given a Single Membership and they are offering you the chance to try it for free!  CTCMath is wonderful for children that don't fit 100% into a specific grade level.  When you use the program you have access to ALL levels and not just the grade that your child is in.  Issac is in 5th grade and for several years he was actually ahead in math. It was one of the subjects that he really enjoyed. He excelled in it for several years until multiplication and division came into play.  He struggled, so I worked him around those problems while we tried to memorize our facts.  This went on longer than I had hoped and eventually we started getting behind.  Last year we tried a few things that were new to us and they seemed to help him get most of the multiplication fac…

Busy Hands Make a Sleepy Mama!

I have been having trouble sleeping well this week and it's been so very frustrating. What I really struggle to understand is how when I'm restless the nightmares seem to appear. That then makes my sleep worse and it's a vicious cycle! This morning I decided that we needed some muffins to snack on this week and I had varied frozen fruit in the freezer that I wanted to use up. We will be moving soon and while I don't want my extra freezer empty there are some things that could be used up to make the packing go much smoother :) I found a bag of craisins in the freezer and decided to use those for muffins. For the life of me I have NO idea why I have a LARGE bag of craisins in the freezer (LOL) I hit Pinterest looking for some recipes and found one that looked good.  Found this recipe for Cranberry Blueberry Muffins that looked good, so we went with it. I decided to do 2 batches with just the craisins, did 2 batches with just the blueberries and then used the same recipe …
