D. Anecdote

One of our school districts received a MotivAider, a simple personal electronic device that privately provides an innovative way to keep students focused and engaged. It is easy and quick to set with short reinforcements and assists in positive behavior changes and the development of new habits. Several of the teachers now request the device to keep their students on task. It has made a huge difference!
