Use your voice to improve your brain? Is this a joke? Actually no it is not. Forbrain – Sound for Life LTD has this bone conduction headset that makes learning from your own voice a possibility. How? Well that is what I want to talk with you about!
What Is It
That is the question when it comes to the Forbrain headset. What is this? The Forbrain headset is actually quite simple. This headset does not go in your ears like most headsets do. This one sits just outside of your ear, yet allows you to hear your own voice ten times faster than anything else. By wearing this headset daily, up to 2o minutes for the teens or older in your house, or 15 minutes for those younger, you will be able to improve your attention, speech and./or memory. Yes, I just said that simply wearing this and speaking out loud for 15-20 minutes a day can improve your memory, attention or speech!
How? Well, the Forbrain headset works by allowing you to hear yourself speak. This immediate feedback will teach you of your speech issues. Even if you don't think you have any, this headset will allow you to hear yourself. This is key. You are not recording and listening to yourself. You get immediate feedback just by hearing yourself speak.
How We Used It
That is it? You just put this headset on, talk like normal and learn? Yes, that is all you have to do! We didn't believe it until we tried it. Everyone in the house wanted to see and hear how this would work, and hear we did! After everyone tried this once, we read the instructions and decided how each child would use this for the review. The little instruction booklet also told us the recommend amount of time for each member to use the Forbrain each day.
Moe Man used this Forbrain for his reading comprehension issues along with his speech difficulties. We picked a different subject for each day of the week and just plain reading on the weekend. What did I notice? Right away I heard him correcting his speech. Instead of his normal mumbling that usually occurs, I heard his handsome voice! He opened his mouth and the words were much more noticeable. I loved what I heard! Oh, and to top it off, his grades on his subjects that we used the Forbrain for went up.
Ray Ray used the Forbrain for 15 minutes a day with his reading. He does not like to slow down with his reading, and I found that having the Forbrain on, he spent more time reading. And not just time, but he used different voices and tones. He really got into the reading. Instead of speeding through his reading, he spent time on it. He enjoyed it! I enjoyed seeing that he slowed down enough in his reading to actually understand it. I was able to ask him questions and get answers!
What Did We Think
The kids loved using the Forbrain. They loved hearing themselves and this is something we were thankful to receive. I mainly wanted to see how Moe Man could do since he has had a hard time with school from the beginning. I loved his results! I loved hearing his voice. If the only thing to come out of this was hearing him open his mouth and speak, then it was all worth it! In all the years of explaining to him what he sounds like, having him actually hear it in real time was all it took. I have to admit, the better grades were a bonus along with Ray Ray and his reading, but my favorite was hearing Moe Man.
These are just a small amount of ways to use the Forbrain. Want to see more? Head on over and see what these other families used their Forbrains for.
