  • 'To win a Kids Judge Bett Award means so much to us, it’s a wonderful idea and to be judged and awarded by the children is the ultimate recognition. School environments can be noisy and distracting places. We’re so happy to have developed a solution to offer relief for children who struggle with sound, and help them manage the negative impacts of auditory overwhelm in learning environments. We were overwhelmed at Bett by the amount of support we had from pupils and industry professionals when they saw just how much Calmer® Kids are helping children.'
