Mightier & ADHD

…We switched schools, received a diagnosis of ADHD, started on medications, and discovered Mightier. While the new school and medication have been incredibly helpful and I cannot say enough good things about his teacher, we didn’t start to see a change until we started using Mightier…Mightier has opened up conversations about emotions in our home and we now feel safe and free to express ourselves in a way that honours our own and our family values.

Mightier & ADHD

Mightier allows kids to practice emotion calming skills during game play. The more kids practice these skills, the more they are able to transfer them to real life situations. For kids with ADHD, Mightier helps them learn to regulate in 3 key areas:

Outbursts:

Mightier helps kids develop strategies for slowing down even when they get frustrated.

Impulsive behavior:

Mightier helps kids know that they’re in control, even when their emotions start to well up.

Aggression:

Mightier helps kids take charge of the impulses that lead to aggressive outbursts. They do this because they prove to themselves that their calming skills work.

Clinically Validated Research

Our research has proven that meeting kids where they are at and engaging them in fun, interactive ways works. The technology behind Mightier has been tested in 3 clinical trials, including two double-blind randomized controlled trials. The trials showed a 62% reduction in outbursts with 45 minutes of Mightier practice a week over a 12 week period.

Mightier is fun and he enjoys playing the games.

First, Mightier is fun and he enjoys playing the games. Without that, nothing else matters. Giving him a concrete way to see his over excitement and the need to get back into the cool zone offers good lessons and opens the door to have conversations about other times when he is feeling stressed and frustrated in real life.
