C8Kids, the Yale neuroscience program that helps kids improve their attention and thinking abilities, has been called “paradigm changing” and a “seismic shift” in education technology – and now C8 Sciences has created a sales model that’s just as revolutionary. The C8 leadership team announced today that the entire student training program is to be made available to all families for the price of their choosing.
“When we designed C8Kids, we dreamed that the program might level the playing field for millions of children with attention and memory difficulties,” said Bruce E. Wexler, MD, Yale neuroscientist and Chief Scientist at C8 Sciences, “And with today’s announcement, we’re taking a huge step toward making that dream a reality.”
The home version of the C8Kids, which combines a physical exercise curriculum with a highly advanced computerized brain training system, now allows any user to create an account and access the entire student program for whatever price they choose, with no minimum amount required.
Ken Coleman, CEO, explained, “We’ve completely redesigned the experience for parents, so now the whole program is easier to implement and more flexible to the families’ needs – but we’ve also overhauled all of the cognitive reports and assessments. Those reports were already among the richest cognitive data available to parents and teachers, and now we’ve expanded them and made them available for purchase one at a time as the student completes each level of the training program.”
C8Kids has recently been recognized as a finalist in the Software and Information Industry Association’s Ed Tech Business Forum, as a “Company to Watch in 2013-4” by respected industry market research firm SharpBrains, and was named the recipient of a National Institutes of Health Director’s Award for Paradigm Changing Research. School-based C8 programs are currently underway in public schools in Connecticut, New York, and Florida.
