Over the past ten years I’ve logged hundreds of hours sitting in waiting rooms. I have seen the hope and the hopelessness. I have been the hopeful and the frightened. I have tried again and again, given up and tried again. I have connected with other parents and at times, hidden my face in a magazine. I’ve left with the photo-copied, stick figured exercise homework, not understanding anything in the two minutes of the appointment what I was supposed to do and getting buried in dinner, homework and helping my other kids. It is from within those four walls I decided there had to be a better way. I began researching the internet, reading books, attending seminars and meeting with other parents.
Along this journey, I met Dr. Nelson Mane, Board Certified in Chiropractic Orthopedics and attaining his MD licensure in Internal Medicine. Dr. Mane had been successfully helping kids for 20+ years with neuro-developmental disorders and was treating them from a neurological basis rather than with temporary solutions. In his years of treating children with everything from mild ADHD and dyslexia to full blown autism, he had come face to face with the devastation it was causing to families. When a child is born, the parents begin wondering if they might someday be president and then as the signs of the condition begin to manifest they begin to worry if the child will be able to finish school or be able to hold a job. He saw the despair that parents feel when he heard a mother who had a child with severe autism say "I know its unnatural but I pray every day that he dies before I do", fearing who would take care of her child. It quickly became apparent that Dr. Mane and I shared a mutual desire to tackle this tidal wave of neurodevelopmental challenges faced by millions of kids in a way that was effective, affordable, accessible and less time consuming than bringing one child at a time into the clinic.
I approached Dr. Mane about creating a video game, a medium that all children love and something that would be easy for the parent to engage the child in. The combination of Dr. Mane’s expertise, my background in technology and an amazing team of individuals that supported my efforts in this journey turned out to be the perfect recipe for what I wanted to accomplish – a new and better way to help kids, help parents and feed research. We put together a combination of tools, and programs based on years of research to help children in the convenience of their own home. We believe wholeheartedly that our programs can help unlock the potential within these children.
Wanting the best for our kids is inherent as a parent. If you have a child with ADD/HD or Dyslexia, as a Parent or Doctor, we have walked in your shoes. And I will tell you that it takes diligence, commitment and a lot of practice. Our programs are designed to give you better, visible results in a shorter amount of time and help your child’s time in the classroom be easier and more efficient. I hope you join Kinuu and our movement towards helping kids, providing research and ‘Putting Hope in Motion’.

We'll try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting you through email. If a dispute is not resolved within 15 days after submission, you or Kinuu may bring a formal proceeding.
The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes.

Both you and Kinuu consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. We both agree to waive our right to a jury trial.
Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to your use of the Game Software or other Kinuu products or services must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or else that claim or cause of action will be barred forever.
This Agreement represents the complete agreement between you and Kinuu concerning the Game Software and supersedes all prior agreements and representations, warranties or understandings between you and Kinuu (whether negligently or innocently made but excluding those made fraudulently), regarding the same subject matter. Kinuu reserves the right to amend this Agreement at any time, at its sole discretion. If any part of the Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in effect. Any failure by us to enforce or exercise any provision of the Agreement or related rights shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision.
Kinuu may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time. Notwithstanding, you may not assign, transfer or sublicense any or all of your rights or obligations under the Agreement without Kinuu's express prior written consent. Kinuu's performance of the Agreement is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in the Agreement is in derogation of Kinuu's right to comply with governmental, court, and law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the Game Software or information provided to or gathered by Kinuu with respect to such use.
