Curriculum
What does a typical lesson look like?

Each lesson is about 15 minutes long, and is composed of animated stories with carefully designed problem-solving activities. On average, a child will solve 10~15 problems in one lesson.

What is DoBrain's secret sauce?

Honestly, there is no secret sauce to our content. We put in honest efforts—more than 1 million working hours invested to date—to provide the best experience for your child based on our Founder's popular curriculum and the decades of experience of our lead educators and therapists.

How is DoBrain different than other options?

DoBrain is the only learning program available for 3-7 year olds that has been clinically validated for its effects. We pride ourselves in having carefully curated decades of teaching experience into an app, and we're constantly working to improve self-motivated learning for our little users.

Pricing
How much does DoBrain cost?

7-day free trial is provided as you download the app from the Google Play Store or App Store. Pricing for the subscription is provided on the 'subscription' button from the home screen of the app.

Research
What research are you doing with Harvard?

Harvard's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and Massachusetts General Hospital are carrying out research with DoBrain between 2019-2022 to validate the effects of DoBrain on cognition improvement for children in the US. The intention is to use the results as part of our FDA approval process.

Is DoBrain FDA-approved?

We demand only the highest standard of content for our users, and hope to be FDA approved by 2022. A pre-submission application was filed with the FDA in late 2020. Currently, there is an Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA to offer DoBrain as a medical device due to COVID-19.

App Store
Why don't I see a 4.6 star rating in the App Store?

DoBrain's beta version was available between 2018-2020, during which over 450,000 users tested the app, and reported an average of 4.6 stars given by parents. The beta version is no longer in the App Store, but we would be happy to provide screenshots of the previous App Store comments & scores. Contact us at hello@dobrain.us.

App Usage
Is DoBrain accessible to neurodiverse children?

DoBrain has been tested with children who have borderline developmental delay due to autism, intellectual disability, ADHD, cerebral palsy, and others with positive results.

Can my child do multiple lessons at once?

Yes, you will have unlimited access to content once you subscribe to our plan. However, doctors recommend no more than one hour of digital exposure per day.

Should my child use the app alone?

The app does not require the parent to be present. For best results, keep an eye out for our reports provided after every 7 sessions and upon completion of each milestone (28 sessions). Don't forget to ask your child what he or she learned with DoBrain every day!

My child gets frustrated when he/she is wrong

This is a common and natural response for children, and a necessary learning experience. Please encourage your child to try again if this happens!
