Mightier & Autism

I was concerned that [he] would become frustrated with the process and not want to continue but the opposite happened. [He] felt empowered because he began to recognize that he was in direct control over how his time with the games went.

What is ASD/Autism?

Children with ASD/autism often display emotional regulation challenges. Symptoms may include aggression, disruptive behaviors, irritability, anger, or anxiety. Mightier can help with these symptoms. Our randomized controlled trials of the fundamental technology showed improvement in aggression and disruptive behaviors. We also saw improvement in emotional regulation.

Mightier & Autism

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 autism, Mightier helps them learn to regulate in 3 key areas:

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.

Frustration:

Kids with autism can often get frustrated. By helping kids keep cool even when things are hard, Mightier helps them succeed during challenging moments.

Self-esteem:

Nothing is better than seeing that you have the ability to get through heated challenges. Mightier reinforces to kids that.

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.
