1. There are three DF kits available.  The Complete and Deluxe Kits contain one operation of Rapid Recall (a math fact mastery program that is a great addition to any math curriculum) and a Skip Count CD.  The Deluxe Kit adds the Sequencing in a Flash (an auditory and visual processing computer game). The Advanced Kit substitutes these math products for Sequencing in a Flash (Please see the Product Comparison Chart).

Optional: The DF Complete and DF Deluxe Kits can be ordered with three additional Rapid Recall operations with or without the Rapid Recall Visual Input CD, all at a substantial savings.

 

2. We recommend the Complete or Deluxe Kit for children who are not proficient with their math facts as one operation of Rapid Recall is included within these kits.  The Advanced kit is best for older children who are proficient with all four operations of math facts.  If you are not sure how proficient your child is with math facts try this Math Facts Proficiency Assessment to help you with your decision. 

3. For more information about the benefits of DF we recommend ordering the free Developmental Foundations Article Bundle from our store.  A quick overview of the brain training benefits DF has to offer is also available by viewing the Activities and Benefits Chart.

4. The kit contents (available separately on the store) are simply the tools needed to complete the particular activities requiring supplies. The greatest value of DF is the brain stimulating activities that produce the function shown on Benefits of Developmental Foundations. These very specific activities are taught through our INP web training site along with guidelines for the frequency (number of times per day to do an activity) and durations (amount of time for each frequency).

 
 
 

5. For best results, DF activities should be implemented 5 days per week, for approximately 1½-2 hours each day. Some activities can be done independently and others require about 40 minutes of assistance. A consecutive block of time is not required.  Included in this time is the individual’s reading and math sessions. Activities and Benefits Chart

6. Yes.  DF was designed to be an affordable, solution for the entire family. Additional materials must be ordered if more than one individual is utilizing the Rapid Recall System within the Complete or Deluxe kits.

7. The DF is designed to be accomplished over a 16 week period. Some homeschooling families choose to use the mobility activities throughout the school year as a brain-enhancing “P.E.”

8. Unfortunately, there is no “magic pill.” It takes consistent effort to reap the rewards that The NeuroDevelopmental Approach has to offer. DF may be only the first step toward academic success for some individuals and for others, the only step needed.

Our suggestion is to work with the DF program for 16 weeks.  After 16 weeks, assess your situation to determine if anyone in your family would benefit from additional NeuroDevelopmental brain training programs.

 
 
 
 

9. You will receive information about each program activities on the Individualized NeuroDevelopmental Program (INP) site.  In order to accomplish the activities successfully, view video clips and/or handouts providing the necessary instruction.

10. No. DF contains brain training activities that are foundational and are of benefit to everyone but are not individually targeted like our individualized evaluation programs. With over 20 years of experience in the field of NeuroDevelopment we have found, because of the way society has changed, many individuals have missed developmental stages.  The activities in DF are designed to create, repair or develop the foundation which was not solidified due to missing a developmental step or not spending enough time in the various developmental stages.

 
 

11. 

  • You will receive an e-mail with notification that your kit was shipped as well the instructions for the pre-testing process.

  • When you receive the kit, complete the pre-testing assessments and turn in the pre-survey with corresponding scores.

  • Your online training program will be activated once the pre-survey is received.  This program will be available to you through the internet for 30 days.

  • You will continue to receive weekly encouraging e-mails over a 16 week period after your program is activated.

  • After 16 weeks, complete the post-testing and survey to determine your next step.

 

12. We have found that 30 days is more than an ample amount of time to learn and start implementing the activities and is not needed after your daily routine is underway. 

13. Simply reply to the weekly encouraging e-mail with any question. Most questions can be answered via e-mail but if more discussion is needed a Little Giant Steps representative will call you.  It is our desire to make your journey as effortless as possible.  We are committed to your success and willing to assist you with any questions or concerns.

 
 

14. There are several options to choose from once your DF is complete.
