Beat the Odds® is an evidence-based curriculum developed by researchers at UCLA that helps children build core strengths such as focusing and listening, team building, leadership, expressing feelings, managing anger/stress, empathy, and gratitude. Research has shown that Beat the Odds® can significantly reduce problematic behaviors in children, such as those associated with inattention, withdrawn/ depression, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, attention deficit/hyperactivity, oppositional defiance, and sluggish cognitive tempo.

HealthRHYTHMS® was innovated by neurologist, Barry Bittman, MD, to be a fun, evidence-based whole person strategy which promotes socialization and ensures a healthy non-strenuous workout. On a deeper level it builds bridges while fostering nurturing, support, camaraderie, self-respect and respect for others. It is not really about drumming, but uses the drum as a tool for communication and personal expression. (www.remo.com/health)
