Goally was instrumental in establishing a routine with our daughter with ADHD. We went from daily meltdowns to peace and cooperation on the very first day. The visual schedule app changed our lives

My ADHD-Anxiety 10 yo LOVES his Goally [...]. We use it to help keep him on task. We create routines together, test them together, make adjustments to them based on his feedback & let him determine the rewards store for things that are meaningful to him. Keeping him involved in the set-up has provided him a sense of power & ownership for his responsibilities

Candace J.

We got our Goally on Monday and I was able to set everything up pretty quickly. And guess what, [my son] is obsessed with it!!! It has already helped the morning routine tremendously. He’s getting up without me when the Goally goes off and he’s very eager to get everything done in the allotted time. This whole week we have been leaving for school at the perfect time.

Jennifer C.

It’s going well! [My son] loves our hot chocolate routine. Often he will bring goally over to indicate to make it or other times he will ask for hot chocolate and I say go grab goallly. It sure has helped making kitchen time more structured and less chaotic! I hope to add a few more fun routines, before we get into more serious goals, but haven’t gotten there yet!
