AVANT has partnered with Brain Resource, Inc., a developer of innovative tools to improve brain health, on the Health 2.0 launch of MyBrainSolutions for Parents and its companion site for children, PoweringUp –an attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) management tool for the home.
MyBrainSolutions for Parents empowers families to work together to improve skills needed for the classroom, the playground, at home and in life. A key feature of the site is a scientifically validated assessment and report that provides a better understanding of their child’s unique pattern of strengths and relative limitations. The system uses insights gathered from the assessment combined with parent settings to customize the games and activities on the PoweringUp site for children.
“Collaborating with our partners to invent new technology products that improve health and wellness has become a primary objective for AVANT. Contributing to Identifying and managing ADHD in children is an exciting opportunity to impact millions of families in a positive way. We are thrilled about the potential this product will have in the marketplace!” – Michael Kemper, Founder & Principal, AVANT, LLC.
“As both a clinician and a parent, I know firsthand the challenges that come with ADHD and understand how many feel powerless in the face of this condition. Like many parents, I often wished there was more I could do to help my child,” said Gregory A. Bayer, Ph.D., CEO of Brain Resource, Inc. “Our approach is unlike any other as we recognize that the one who knows the child best is already in the home. By helping parents better understand their child’s specific needs, we can provide a clear pathway to tackle the areas that require attention from the comfort of their own home. This site empowers both parent and child to work together in a goal-oriented, fun and rewarding way.”
