How is the WatchMinder helping those with AD/HD, LD, and Autism spectrum disorders?
"I have used this watch in the past with my son who has Aspergers and ADD and Sensory Integration disorder. I have just purchased the watch for myself to help remind me to take my own medication.
I have a suggestion for improvement and a testimony to share. This device has proven to be a life changer for my family." - Proud Parent
"This system has changed my life, it’s great…" – Student with AD/HD
"The watch has helped my 13 year-old. The sense of control it gives him really helps his attitude and his organizational skills have improved greatly…" – Parent of AD/HD child
"My daughter just loves this watch and its functionality and has found it helps her tremendously." – Parent of Autistic child
"I received my WatchMinder and I absolutely love it. It's exactly the tool I have been looking for. I have set the watch to the random training mode to help keep me on task during the workday and have also set up reminders for when it's time to leave work, work on my studies, etc. Thus far I have been nothing but satisfied. Thank you so much for inventing this wonderful product." – Adult with AD/HD
"My son thinks that it has been very helpful. I also received a note from one of his teachers telling about the change that she has noticed in his behavior. She describes him as more mature." – Proud Parent
"Just wanted to let you know that we are loving the watch! My son thinks its cool. He has had it for a couple weeks now, and hasn’t forgotten medicine, or getting ready to go home, (which reminds him to write down his homework and get his assignments together.)" – Proud Parent
"Dr. Becker, I have to say thank you so much for the WatchMinder. You have changed my son's life. He's an 18 year old born with Down’s Syndrome and I have tried everything I can think of to remind him of his daily chores and also of taking care of his hygiene needs. The watch has helped him tremendously. He's also hearing impaired and the vibration alert works great for him. My son also works at Home Depot and he was lacking that certain kick in the backside to keep him going….So we have the training mode set to "Work" every 30 minutes. It truly helps. I will definitely recommend your watch to others."
