The MotivAider Keeps Children Focused

The MotivAider is a tactile reminder device that keeps children focused so they can make desired changes in their behavior and habits

It's really no wonder children often have so much trouble changing their own behavior. They may truly want to change troublesome habits that hamper learning and performance, threaten health, or interfere with socialization. But wanting to change is not enough.

To actually change, a child must be able to keep his or her attention focused on what to do and why to do it. That's not so easy for a young mind in a classroom - and a world - filled with distractions.

The MotivAider keeps children focused on the changes they want to make in their own behavior and habits. And it does it automatically and privately while relieving teachers and parents of the need to "nag."

MotivAider Benefits

The MotivAider is easy for children to understand and use. It's friendly and it makes sense to them. It helps children:

  • Break bad habits quickly
  • Easily build new habits
  • Practice new skills
  • Work on behavior changes privately
  • Take pride in the positive behavior changes they make

How the MotivAider works

The MotivAider works by periodically sending the child a private, silent tactile reminder - the entire device gently vibrates. The vibration is used to privately convey a personal message, such as "It pays to pay attention," or "Slow and steady wins the race," that reminds and urges the child to make a desired change in behavior.

It takes only a few minutes to prepare a child to use the MotivAider. First, you help the child devise a personal message. Next, you link the message to the vibration so that the child will automatically think the message whenever he or she feels the vibration. Then, you set the MotivAider to deliver the vibration signal as often as desired - as often as once every few seconds. Once the child is behaving consistently in the new, desired way, you can simply phase out the MotivAider.

Teachers, therapists and parents use the MotivAider, too

The MotivAider is not just for kids. Teachers and therapists use the MotivAider themselves to stay tuned-in to a particular teaching or therapeutic objective or method. And parents use the device to help them do the right thing consistently despite the powerful emotions and reflexive responses that can be so easily triggered by their child's behavior. Read more about how parents and educators are using the MotivAider.
