Effective boost in dyslexia therapy

Forbrain® is a scientifically-proven, revolutionary device that can enhance reading fluency, improve memory recall, and boost overall learning performance.

What do Parents say about Forbrain?

“I have been using this in my occupational therapy practice for the last year. All of my clients feedback’s were very positive. I noted improvement with language in my seven years old daughter.” – Deidre, Occupational Therapist and mother of a dyslexic girl

 

“I bought Forbrain for my 10-year old son, who’s diagnosed with dyslexia. […] He was able to summarize the chapter and answer the questions effortlessly. […] He said that Forbrain made him feel like someone was reading the book to him.” – Jacqueline, Parent of a dyslexic boy

Forbrain boosts confidence and learning ability through the power of neuroplasticity

Dyslexia does not affect an individual’s intelligence, yet children with dyslexia usually struggle in school. They are often especially creative, and innovative problem solvers, but still struggle with the fundamental skill of learning to read and write. In turn, they may feel like they are lagging behind their peers, and their self-esteem can take a hit.

While the condition can’t be cured, Forbrain can bring out the best in dyslexic individuals through neuroplasticity. The earlier we intervene, the better the outcome.

Neuroplasticity refers to your brain’s ability to rewire itself and change the way it responds to certain stimuli. Forbrain harnesses this principle using years of auditory stimulation research to provide an easy-to-use learning device that brings out the best of innovative, creative dyslexic minds.

Our device leverages the natural auditory feedback loop to improve skills that are typically difficult for those with dyslexia, such as speech fluency and comprehension, attention, and memory. With Forbrain, you can grow the cognitive skills and self-confidence to manage dyslexia and lead a fulfilling life.

 

Forbrain improves performance and reignites the joy of learning

Forbrain combats with the three main challenges of dyslexia:
Verbal Memory

Individuals with dyslexia can struggle to remember written words. With Forbrain’s bone conduction technology, you’ll hear your own voice louder and clearer than usual, which supports your memory of letter-sound patterns.

Phonological Awareness

Dyslexia can also make it difficult for children to recognize the individual parts that make up a single word. This can cause errors in reading aloud. The forbrain headset enhances phonological awareness for heightened reading fluency and accuracy of pronunciation.

Verbal Processing Speed

Reading quickly can feel out of reach for those of dyslexia. Forbrain allows for sub-vocalisation, which in turn increases verbal processing speed and allows for a more fluid reading experience.

💡 Individuals with dyslexia face three main challenges: verbal memory, phonological awareness, and verbal processing speed. These difficulties make actions such as reading, writing, speaking, listening, and learning disheartening for people with dyslexia. It can feel like they are behind their peers, when in reality, dyslexic individuals have no impairment to intelligence and in fact possess unique skills and abilities. All they need is a little help to reach their full potential.

With the help of Forbrain, these fundamental challenges are more easily overcome, leading to improved performance in homework, reading or writing tasks. The learning process also becomes more enjoyable and encouraging, cultivating curiosity and intrigue, and reignites interest in reading and learning more about the world.

Forbrain is changing the trajectory for individuals with dyslexia

Julie have been using Forbain for her daughter and herself

Now she is making more of an effort to use those specific letter sounds correctly. She enjoys reading out loud more now which is surprising me. She has recently started to use Forbrain while practicing math facts.

Jacquelin, mother of a girl struggling with reading abilities

I have seen tremendous improvement in her reading comprehension and reading rhythm, especially. She used to read so fast without any pause and in such a monotone voice. Now that she has the headset on she can actually hear how she sounds and has made great strides in slowing down and reading. Her comprehension has skyrocketed too.

Kelly saw a huge difference in her boys’ speech

I feel like he has become more confident in his reading abilities, and he now asks us all if he can read to us. He also continues to watch his YouTube videos, and wears the headset as he talks along with the audio of the video. My youngest uses it when we do phonics and reading lessons, so he really truly hears the annunciation of each sound.

Lisa, Mother of a boy with speech troubles and phonetic awareness

It has done EXACTLY what I hoped it would. His phonetic awareness has improved immensely, as he’s FINALLY able to hear the sounds he’s saying to better recognize the differences. His sounding out word skills are growing by leaps and bounds because he can finally HEAR what he’s saying and process it.

Megan’s son finishes homework much quicker now

My family has seen huge progress with the use of Forbrain and we are so glad we decided to purchase it. If you or someone you know with kids or even adults are struggling with reading, memorizing, attention or speech troubles look into this it’s pretty amazing what it can do.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Forbrain can be used between regular sessions to reinforce the work done with your child’s therapist or specialist. Considering therapy is usually a long-term approach, Forbrain optimizes and complements these efforts.

Forbrain is simple to use – ask the child to speak, sing, read out aloud or have a conversation. However, we do not provide specific recommendations because varying ability levels and ages mean exercises should be tailored to suit individual needs. Some therapists have kindly shared the exercises they use in therapy, found here.

Forbrain is a painless, non-invasive sensory stimulation device. Like any stimulation, Forbrain can excite and tire the person during sessions. Therefore, Forbrain is not suitable for: 

  • Children under 3 years of age
  • People with hearing loss in both ears of 80%
  • People carrying a cochlear implant
  • People with epilepsy (except upon specialist advice)

Yes, but adjust the microphone volume so the use of Forbrain remains pleasant to your child. If too much discomfort is experienced, the use of Forbrain should be stopped immediately.

No, but they are designed to fit all head sizes. To comfortably use Forbrain, place the headphones on the bone in front of the ears and properly position the microphone before the mouth. Don’t worry if the hoop doesn’t fit against the head as it won’t affect the device’s comfort or effectiveness.

Forbrain is the only available tool to process voice through a dynamic filter and retransmit the sound waves by leveraging bone conduction. A unique patented filter opens and closes in response to certain sounds, then transmits the sound via bone conduction with the ear unobstructed. The technology is unique and perfectly complements other therapies.

No, Forbrain operates wirelessly and autonomously. However, you can choose to use the headphone jack to connect to a phone or computer and follow on with audio content.

When using Forbrain with your child, consider integrating it into their daily routine to enhance reading fluency and comprehension during homework and reading activities. One valuable feature is the option to plug in a secondary microphone, which further amplifies and filters your voice, aiding your child’s focus and creating a bubble of attention. This can help them stay engaged and attentive while working on their reading and homework tasks.

During your therapy sessions, consider offering your clients the option to wear Forbrain. By plugging in the secondary microphone to work in tandem with the device, you can enhance the therapeutic experience. Additionally, thanks to our affiliate program, you have the opportunity to recommend Forbrain to your clients. This can serve as a valuable bridge between sessions, providing them with ongoing support and resources to further their progress.

If your child or yourself has been diagnosed with other learning or language disorders such as dysphasia, dysphonia, dyspraxia, or dyscalculia, Forbrain can be a valuable addition to your therapy. Once you are eligible for Speech and Language support, Forbrain can help enhance the outcomes and facilitate better integration of therapy into your or your child’s learning journey.

To gauge the effectiveness of Forbrain, consider both immediate and long-term outcomes. Initially, you should notice improvements in voice clarity and strength when using the device, as it provides immediate feedback. However, like any learning process or therapy, long-term results require time and repetition. Think of Forbrain as a workout for the audio-vocal process that yields robust benefits with consistent use.
