I am working with an 8 year old boy with Autism on a weekly basis. We are using program 1. Mom is great with carrying through with daily practice. We ran into a small road block with this boy's skill on one of the tasks which caused a subsequent stress reaction of itchiness and stuttering. I emailed Nancy Rowe, the creator of this program, and got immediate feedback, suggestions and advice, which helped to transition this boy over the obstacle and into better processing skill. I don't know of any other program where there is such great customer relations! Thanks Nancy and Johnathan! This young boy is making tremendous progress with his handwriting, such as improved letter formation, improved spacing between words, and improved placement on the line. He is also making unexpected improvements with self confidence and ability to speak and stand up for himself. Mom is thrilled with the handwriting improvement and with her son's improved self advocacy.
Sticking with it!
My son started the PreK program and it has been great for him! He is happy to do the program and is proud of himself for completing each day. The format has helped with memory retention and following instructions. We will continue the program and most likely move to the next level program when the time comes. For the money this at-home program is well worth the investment! Thank you StepUp!
Just what our son needed!
We have a 4 yo son that is developmentally delayed. I started StepUp with him last summer using the free trial and readily converted to a subscription when that ran out. We were so impressed with the body awareness skills he gained. He became comfortable in water - even taking swimming lessons. He has learned to ride a pedal bike and a scooter. At the same time his language exploded and he began speaking in full sentences. Though we are still working on clarity with a speech therapist, the StepUp program has been an amazing tool In our lives. Thank you so much for creating a program that can be done daily in the home! A side benefit is that his siblings are doing it too! We now have a 2 yo that is very advanced thanks to doing therapy alongside her brother!
I'm a pediatric occupational therapist with over 25 years of experience who is SI certified and Neuronet has been the best treatment modality to come along in several years. When I first trained and worked with the program my initial thoughts were.....This is what OT is all about. The program addresses timing, rhythm, focus, coordination, balance, following of directions, bilateral integration, sequencing, motor planning, and the list goes on. I work with a wide range of diagnoses and it is beneficial for all..... I use it daily in the clinical setting and some families use it as a home program. Either way it is beneficial for children that have a formal diagnosis as well as children without one. Plain and simple, I love this program because it is easy to administer and useful for all children.
Neuronet has been an amazing addition to our special needs children! The program is exciting, motivating and the kids are really enjoying it! Most importantly we're seeing progress in following directions at increased speeds. As an occupational therapist I particularly appreciate the combination of the brain with the body combination in meeting goals. I strongly believe this product should be made available to all children!
