AD/HD, ADD and LD


The WatchMinder3 was invented by a child psychologist who works with children and adults with attention disorders. The watch is an assistive device that is currently being used by persons with:

  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD)
  • Learning Disorders
  • Hearing Impairments
  • Autism and Aspergers’s Syndrome
  • Developmental Disabilities


The WatchMinder3 facilitates IDEA compliance. The watch is an excellent tool for functional behavioral assessment and behavioral intervention.

Adults and children are successfully using the watch in a variety of ways. Several States, including Nebraska, New York, and Kansas are using the WatchMinder3 in their assistive technology loan programs. School districts across the country are also purchasing the watch and using the watches in their special education programs. Both the training and the reminder modes are being used to modify behaviors and remember specific tasks.The watch is being recommended by psychologists, psychiatrists, ADD coaches, and professional organizers. Here are some interesting uses for the WatchMinder:

  • Busy parents with children who have learning and attentional problems are using the watch to remind themselves to GIVPOS, meaning to give positive reinforcement. Studies indicate that parents spend a great deal of time being negative and focussing on what the child is doing “wrong”. The watch is getting the parents back on track and in a more positive frame of mind.
  • Teachers also are busy and forget to GIVPOS. The WatchMinder3 is reminding teachers to remember to give positive reinforcement throughout the school day.
  • Children are using the watch to self-monitor their own behavior. One training message is selected for the child, such as PYATTN. Throughout the school day this message appears and the child self-reports whether he/she was paying attention. A scorecard is maintained by the child and reinforcement is given at the end of the day/week for self-monitoring the behavior. Research suggests that self-monitoring can be effective in improving behavior.
  • College students with ADD and LD are finding that watch is very effective for time management and pacing during exams.
  • Persons with hearing impairments can “feel” the vibration and find the watch to be beneficial in their daily lives.
  • Persons with visual impairments find the large face and large characters easy to read
  • Many children with attention disorders forget to write down their homework before they leave school. COPYHW meaning copy homework in your planner can be activated just before the end of the school day.
  • Middle and high school students find the watch helpful with their class schedules and time management.
  • The watch helps children remember to CHORES and CALHME.
  • The watch helps children and adults achieve independence. The parent does not need to “nag” the child, the watch is the prompt to do a particular task. The watch can help improve parent/child relationships.
