My tester is 10 years old, and has struggled with speech and reading. She is also my "techie" kid, so I had no problem introducing a new gadget (and she feels super cool wearing it).
Forbrain recommends wearing the headset for 10-15 minutes twice a day for her age (slightly longer for adults). The ability to clearly hear your own voice has many benefits including auditory processing, reading fluency, memory and more.
My tester has really struggled with reading aloud clearly. She inserts many vocal pauses and odd "em, um, ahh" sounds while she reads. So, we decided to give Forbrain a test everytime she read aloud, as well as, when she read independently.
Right away, you notice how loud your voice is. It takes a bit of getting used to, hearing your voice (and actually "feeling" it too). I tried it on, and used it while reading aloud as well.
My tester loved using it! I had her wear it anytime she was reading aloud, or working on reading exercises. The company recommends 6 weeks of use to see results. However, after just a few uses - we started noticing improvements!
My tester says it helps her "focus" on what she's reading. I've noticed a dramatic decrease in her vocal pauses when she reads to me. Another comment from my tester - "I like reading alone in my room, and I don't feel lonely, because I hear myself". :-)
Forbrain is easy to use, and surprisingly effective. My tester plans to keep using it. You will want to check it out!
