AVE Success from A Chance to Grow

A Chance to Grow has sent us some amazing customer feedback about AVE products. For the next few weeks I'll post some of them for you to read to see what a difference AVE makes to children, parents and teachers.

My son has had very challenging behaviors for quite some time.  I was at my wits end with him.  Nothing worked.  Then we found out about AVE.  TWO DAYS later he was back to his old self.  The challenging behavior is GONE!

After Two days of using the AVE my daughter drew a stick person!  She had only drawn egg people before with arms coming out where the ears should be.  Her OT worked with her for months, and worked with her to no avail.  TWO DAYS!

My son experienced enormous benefit from the AVE program.  After 5 sessions he went from being unable to read simple words, without assistance, to reading whole paragraphs unassisted.  He went from being scattered and disruptive in class to a well-mannered child who was able to focus on classroom assignments.  Stress was reduced at home for everyone, as my son was far more agreeable and compliant to household routines and expectations.  The AVE program has had a significant part in creating greater successes in my son’s life

Our son, age 14, diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy 2 years ago, has been a slow learner and mentally impaired for years.  He has used the AVE machine approximately  5 weeks.   Right away my husband and I noticed more alertness in Danny, especially in completing tasks and being more organized.  Nothing else has ever worked and I was skeptical.  It’s hard to put a finger on what is different, but we know for sure it is a change for the better.

 Stressed about your grades?
Understandable, in addition to having better job prospects, good grades gives you more confidence to do well in other areas of your life outside of school.  While stress can be good too much of it increases chances of illness and can lead to burn outs.
            Want to maximize your study time?
While grades matter, the valedictorian receives an award for not only good grades, but also having a well rounded lifestyle.  Learning how to maximize your studying can free up time to do sports or other creative projects.
      Can’t remember her name? Errrr I mean historical facts, yeah, yeah that’s it facts.
If you have a good memory school becomes significantly easier, because much of the curriculum revolves around memorizing facts and dates. Boosting your capacity to recall names, faces and places gets you noticed.

How can our technologies help?
1.      Our AVEs have a HRV (heart rate variability) setting to help you pace your breathing.  By talking deep breaths from your abdomen you will feel more relaxed as you run an alpha session.  Alpha waves occur during sensorial rest (eg. when the eyes are closed), intellectual relaxation, deep relaxation, meditation or quietening of the mind.  A study from the University of Texas shows that use of AVE reduces worry in students and because of its convenience, students liked it better than the other options.

2.       Studies show that by using Beta waves, which are produced when you perform any task that requires you to concentrate, students can further increase concentration (about 1.5 times) compared to those not using the Beta/SMR program on the AVE.  


Incorporated in 1981, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Mind Alive Inc specializes in brain technology. Our flagship technology is audio-visual entrainment (AVE), and we manufacture the DAVID brand devices. Other products include the Oasis line of cranio-electro stimulators (CES) and transcranial DC Stimulators (tDCS).
