Our Experience:

I used Forbrain with my youngest son to practice pronunciation as he learns the alphabet with various worksheets and props.  There was a noticible improvement as he used the headset.  He also spoke quieter after using Forbrain as he was more aware of his volume level than before.

I also used Forbrain with my second grader as he read aloud.  He said he enjoys using it and it helps him become a better speaker.

My oldest son also practiced with Forbrain.  He read all the paperwork, read through the website, and watched several videos before he started.  He also researched the technology.  He was very impressed with Sound For Life LTD and what they have to offer.  He started with practicing his posture.  He also practiced turning the headset on and off while wearing it.   He especially enjoyed sitting in the sunshine and practicing, or taking a walk and practicing.  Some of the other things he has practiced are reading aloud, poetry, singing, his pronunciation in Greek language, and his math multiplication facts.   He plans to use this product long term to improve his speech and tone and knows this will help him reach his goal.

From my son: “I enjoyed using Forbrain during this review and I will continue using it.  It was interesting to hear myself talk.  It felt good to use.  I could tell when I was talking to loud or not loud enough.  I feel like I have exercised parts of my face I have never used before after I used it for the first time. It felt more natural after a few times of practice.  I look forward to continuing my journey to improve my speech and ability to listen.”

I also used Forbrain myself to practice singing.  It is amazing to hear what I sound like through the headset.  I was a singer years ago.  I would have loved to use Forbrain to help with my music training back then.  We often cupped our hand around our ear during practice to hear ourselves and make adjustments in our pitch and tone.  However, this technology would have greatly helped reach musical goals quicker and more accurately.
