New App Created to Increase Self-Esteem and Productivity for Millions of ADHD Kids and Families
WHO: 4 Million of US Children Who Have ADHD
WHAT: New Task-Focused, Life-Management Solution for ADHD Families Created Called iGotThis
WHEN: March 6th to April 6th Kickstarter Campaign
WHY: It’s no wonder that kids with ADHD are more likely to have low self-esteem – sometimes pathologically low. Repeated failures wear away self-esteem, as does being told that something is “wrong” with you. The truth is that ADHD is simply a byproduct of being extraordinary, but their kids are judged by the expectations of an ordinary world.
iGotThis turns the tables on self-esteem and productivity issues with these extraordinary kids. It is a task-focused, life-management solution uniquely designed for ADHD families that builds self-esteem by ensuring repeated success. It’s loaded with features to keep kids with ADHD on track, focused, and motivated - all while providing real-time visibility and complete control for parents. It provides:
- Repeated successes with its unique failsafe reminder system
- Motivation through a customizable rewards feature
- Positive reinforcement with game dynamics
- Inspirational Messaging about ADHD
- Real-Time, remote oversight to parents
The solution also features web and mobile dashboards, location based reminders, comprehensive task customization, optional project tracking and checklists and planning wizards for parents. Easy to use walkthroughs and video tutorials help everyone get the most of the solution from the first day.
But iGotThis is more than an app- it’s also a community and a mission. iGotThis provides forums and resources that let users share, teach and learn, support and be supported. As part of its mission, iGotThis is providing public outreach to change the way the world views ADHD and those extraordinary people who have it.
It’s so important to build self-confidence and remind those children that ADHD is not a deficiency, it’s a gift. iGotThis helps them learn valuable skills and creates habits that will help them succeed, and build their self-esteem so they can one day have the confidence to enter the world as adults.
Back the project on the Kickstarter page between March 6th and April 6th to help fund finishing the app and you will become one of the “Founding Families” of iGotThis. These families will enjoy lower prices, additional rewards, privileges and recognition.
Users will sign up at the iGotThis.com web site and the app will be available to download in the Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) App Store and the Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Play store upon release.
Reebok launches Kids ATV19 shoes
Colourful footwear collection is designed for
play on all terrains
Toronto, ON – Leading fitness brand Reebok today unveiled its new line of ATV19 footwear for kids. Whether children want to run on pavement, climb on rocks, or play in the mud, Reebok has created the perfect shoe in its ATV19, which allows them to carry on playing whatever the conditions. Brand new to the Reebok Kids Fall/Winter 2013 collection, the ATV19 has 19 unique, colourful pods on the sole each designed with a rubber outsole to give kids added grip and traction while playing.
Having already established itself in the kids sport footwear market through its RealFlex and ZigTech offerings, Reebok is extending its kids offering with the ATV19 collection by giving kids a shoe that adapts to whatever surface they are playing on. Inspired by the tread of an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV), each pod on the ATV19 is strategically positioned to cushion the foot, provide traction when moving and be durable for all environments.
“At Reebok, we wanted to create a shoe that was not only practical, but also fun for kids to play in,” said Stewart Clark, Reebok Brand Leader. “Reebok understands that children don’t move to keep fit, they are active because it’s enjoyable. This is why we created the ATV19 as it allows kids to keep on having fun no matter where they are.”
Reebok hosted a playful event held at Toronto City Sports Centre to launch the new line which presented attending kids with the opportunity to try on the brightly coloured shoes as they went through Reebok’s ATV19 Obstacle Course.
Reebok’s ATV19 Obstacle Course was led by Jackie Clark, owner and general manager atFirePower Kids, a kids-focused fitness facility in Milton, Ontario, whose mission is to build a community of fitness through entertaining and unique programming, including CrossFit Kids and Circus fitness. Clark led the preschoolers and grade-schoolers through basic exercises that not only allowed them to experience the Reebok ATV19 on varied surfaces and through different activities, but to also learn about the importance of fitness at a young age.
Available in stores and online now, the ATV19 footwear for kids has bright pops of colour and unique shapes, making it ideal for the active child. The look, feel and technology are designed so that kids’ imaginations are opened up to the endless possibilities the shoe gives them.
Reebok Kids ATV19 footwear is available at Foot Locker, Sears, Sport Chek and through www.Reebok.ca at $75 for grade school sizes and $65 for preschool sizes.
Reebok is dedicated to empowering people to be fit for life, including kids. Reebok wants to inspire people to get moving and is passionate about helping kids lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
