We are developing a personal biofeedback wearable device for individuals with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). The device will have sensors that will detect when the person is going through stress and offer a variety of effective self-management techniques. This will include interactive music, tactile, sensory, and other techniques to help manage anxiety as well as other common ADHD symptoms. The goal is to allow them to function more independently, achieve higher grades in school, increase work productivity, have better relationships and improve their overall quality of life. It will also give schools the opportunity to have more inclusive, interactive classroom environments and increase their chances for success while reducing the need for expensive accommodations.
"Eclectic Drummer.... Exceptional Performer" (Written about Matt Giordano)
"Suddenly there was synchronization, and they came together as a group, performing 'in the moment with the rhythm,' as Matt puts it." (Matt's drum circles) "promote a musical and social bonding with others, so that what began as a miscellany of isolated, often distressed or self-conscious individuals almost instantly became a cohesive group with a single aim - a veritable drum orchestra under Matt's baton." - Dr. Oliver Sacks
A deeply honest, personal, compelling and inspiring book written by Kathy Giordano (Matt's Mom) and Matt Giordano, about their story while Matt was living as a child with Tourettes Syndrome, OCD, ADHD, challenging behaviors and how they overcame many obstacles.
