“[Clients] never get to a point where they are bored, because I have a lot of flexibility that way to keep them challenged and keep them moving. The cognitive remediation programs we are using have [those features] built in anyway”

“I’ve been able to set up a lot of HappyNeuron Pro programs for clients who did not want to meet for therapy in person. What HappyNeuron Pro has allowed us to have is a structure so we could underpin the client’s day and start their day with HappyNeuron Pro. HappyNeuron Pro allowed us to engage with clients by allowing us to look at their scores and have a conversation around that…”

Improving control allows the client to see that they can do something that is challenging. This helps the client build confidence in themselves, which in turn brings optimism.

Our favorite thing is to be able to break down into core cognitive domains, knowing every task the patient is doing touches upon overlapping cognitive skills, and it gives participants a sense of what skills they are working on.

It was just enjoyable to see the results right at the moment. So once a patient is done with the group, I was able to get the results immediately and see what they did well on and what needed to still be improved. HappyNeuron Pro is just easy and accessible.
