(CINCINNATI, OH) - iGotThis, LLC. of Cincinnati, Ohio has launched a Kickstarter Campaign for the iGotThis solution.
"iGotThis is the first task management system designed specifically for ADHD families. It helps ADHD kids get stuff done and stay focused, while building their self-esteem. It has a built-in rewards system and badges to keep them motivated and gives real-time notifications to parents so they stay in the loop without hovering." explains iGotThis founder, Rich Schramm.
Over 6 million children in the US alone have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and NIH studies show that children with ADHD are much more likely to have low self-esteem, sometimes "pathologically low".
"We are parents of three amazing kids who also have ADHD and I had it as a child myself. We needed a productivity tool to keep our kids, and ourselves, on track and also something that would help build self-esteem in our kids. We searched the market and found nothing designed for our kind of family, so we decided to build it ourselves."
iGotThis delivers many features uniquely designed for families with kids having ADHD, including:
- "Failsafe" Reminder System - ensuring kids can't forget to start and complete tasks
- Real-Time Parental Oversite - Parents keep tabs on what kids are doing from anywhere.
- Built-in Rewards System - Kids earn tokens and redeem them for parent managed rewards.
- Badges - More positive reinforcement through game dynamics.
- ADDitives - Inspirational messages about ADHD
"Our goal was first, and foremost, to provide a tool to help ADHD families function better", Schramm explains. "But our other priority is on building self-esteem in these kids by ensuring a stream of successes, providing positive reinforcement, and delivering inspirational messages."
Users will sign up at the iGotThis.com web site and the app will be available to download in the Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) App Store and the Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Play store upon release. There are also "voice apps" being released for Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) Echo and Google Home smart assistants.
The solution also features web and mobile dashboards, location based reminders, comprehensive task customization, optional project tracking, checklists and planning wizards for parents. Easy to use walkthroughs and video tutorials help everyone get the most of the solution from the first day.
"But iGotThis is more than an app- it's also a community and a mission. iGotThis provides forums and resources that let users share, teach and learn, support and be supported. As part of its mission, iGotThis is providing public outreach to change the way the world views ADHD and those extraordinary people who have it", Schramm explains. "It's so important to build self-confidence and remind those children that ADHD is not a deficiency, it's a gift. iGotThis helps them learn valuable skills, creates habits that will help them succeed and builds their self-esteem so they can one day enter the world as confident adults."
The Kickstarter campaign runs between March 6th and April 6th to help fund finishing the app. Backers will enjoy special pricing, additional rewards, privileges and recognition.
