Social/Emotional

Social and emotional development relates to a child’s ability to understand feelings and emotions of oneself and others. Social and emotional skills not only include the child’s experience, expression, and management of emotions and feelings (intrapersonal) but the ability to establish positive and rewarding relationships with others (interpersonal).

By Sound for Life Ltd

Fitting on the head like headphones, the Forbrain Headset is an auditory feedback device to improve auditory and sensory processing. While this auditory feedback occurs naturally, Forbrain expedites the process with greater clarity. After it filters out the outside noise, the key to this headset is bone conduction technology, which delivers the sound vibrations of your own voice directly to your nervous system and brain, bypassing the ears for more immediate auditory feedback.
