Kids with zing.... anyone recommend(6 Posts)
Just that - has anyone ever done kids with zing, seems to be directed at neurological development - but wondering if has good proven results
Slick marketing, need some independent reviews tho
I have seen presentation and am similarly very sceptical
Hi - I have researched Winford Dore and I am using Kid with Zing and after 8 weeks I'm seeing amazing results with my severely dyslexic son. What a parent needs to know is that a child needs to do brain exercises or reading interventions every day for at least 20 min for 120-150 hours for the brain to grown neurons. Winford's heart is in the right place but his marketing style is hopeless. I paid £350 for the App and half price for my daughter to use. The App is used daily for 6 months and progress is recorded. The child follows the movements of a character for eye tracking, balance, coordination etc. The child uses it twice a day for 10 mins. These brain integration exercises are well known to the build neuron capacity needed for reading/spelling. It is easy for parent/child to use. Unfortunately the education system does not understand brain integration, vilified the man as being a fraud and only after peoples money. A more in depth system is Integrated Listening, the website is very good and you can find people who use the system in the UK integratedlistening.com/ Their system you incorporate sound with movement but the child needs to do it for 1 hour a few times a week and you need to be trained on the system . This link is on the website and it shows the found describe how the system works (Wynford Dore should take lessons from him :-) integratedlistening.com/ils-video-library/
Hi, have you heard about Smart Start Minds? Www.smartstartminds.co.uk. They do a neurofeedback training for kids and adults to improve concentration.
@evansge I’m curious how the program worked for your son. Would you recommend it?
