Tools for Learning Nanodegree

NeuroNet's suite of programs is designed to help children in PreK-Grade 5 reach developmental milestones in hearing, motor skills, and communication. NeuroNet programs also address early reading, math, and handwriting skills. 

The Tools for Learning Nanodegree includes 5 distinct NeuroNet software programs to match the needs of your caseload.

  • Early Learning, PreK, Program 0, Program 1, and Program 2
  • One-year therapist Software License
  • 30 student iPad assessment accounts

Following this online course you will be able to:

  • Use the NeuroNet Software Programs to develop neural networks linking hearing, balance, foot movement, hand movement, listening and talking.
  • Adapt NeuroNet exercises to meet the individual needs of PreK-Grade 5 students needing academic support.
  • Explain the neuroscience research behind using gross motor skills and rhythm to improve fluency in reading, math, and handwriting.

Learning Outcomes

1. The participant will list the basic developmental auditory-motor milestones for children birth to 4 and demonstrate games for developing these skills.

2. The participant will demonstrate basic NeuroNet movement exercises addressing vestibular information processing (rhythm, movement and timing) for children ages 3-5.

3. The participant will demonstrate basic Listen, Talk and Write exercises integrating rhythmic speech, air writing, and copying and drawing of geometric forms for children 3-5. The participant will explain the importance of integrating rhythmic hand movement and rhythmic speech.

4. The participant will explain how the neuroscience research can help us understand and improve a patient’s attention by increasing neural synchrony for balance, listening, speaking and rhythmic movement.

5. The participant will demonstrate auditory motor word memory exercises and explain how these exercises systematically move clients into measurable levels of auditory-motor speech automaticity for 2-syllable and then 3-syllable words.

    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!

    Dynamic Program

    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

    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!

    Great program

    I have been involved with NeuroNet for close to 20 years, My son did the NeuroNet program and I saw improvements academically as well as socially. I also facilitated NeuroNet at a private school where struggling students participated in NN on a daily basis. It was rewarding to see the changes in the students such as improved organization, learning skills, and confidence levels. I feel NeuroNet builds a foundation for the students on which they are able to build and grow in their academics as well as their social and other skills. I highly recommend it for all learners.

    AMAZING PROGRAM

    Our school has been using the NeuroNet program for many years in our regular education and clinical program classrooms. I have seen remarkable progress in the area of auditory and visual processing, gross and fine motor control and coordination, the ability to coordinate language and motor actions, and the automaticity of writing letters and numbers. NeuroNet is easy to administer and has a valuable assessment tool to monitor progress. Our parents often state that their child wants to get to school early to be on time for their NeuroNet class.
