When these vitals get out of whack, Bandu offers suggestions, like “take 5 deep breaths”, “play a song” or calling a loved one to help you calm down.

    AMAZING! Like a mini neuro-feedback unit!The applications for this with high functioning kids,like my 15 yr old son,are endless!His biggest issue is low coping skills in certain situations.He also has issues with sensing his own anxiety triggers.I hope it’ll be made in a way that all can afford it.SO looking forward to trying it.He’s very much into electronics,I think this is right up his alley!
