Our story started about 4 years ago in 2016, when one of co-founders of noomee Gayane, realized that she spent more hours on preparation of working materials, then for real work with children. She is an Occupational Therapist and working with children with unique abilities since 2006. Then different research and talks with colleagues showed that this issue is global. Moreover, as therapists they were always complaining that it’s hard for parents to continue their work at home for having best results.
So the idea was not leaving Gayane. And in 2018 with the team of like-minded people noomee was created.
Why noomee? It is a”new me” in childish words. Children have all the potential and abilities to live independent lives, they just need help discovering it.
noomee’s mission is to mix Occupational Therapy background and methods with technology and help children with unique abilities (special needs) be self-dependent and self-sufficient by allowing them to develop lifelong skills.
In the beginning noomee was aimed to help children on a spectrum (ASD) But after a couple of testings in rehabilitation centers we got feedback from parents that their children need noomee, but they have other special needs. And we realized that it could be a tool not only for children with ASD, but also ADHD, Asperger’s syndrome, Down syndrome, anxiety or any other special needs.
The uniqueness and one of the strengths of noomee is the TEAM behind it. The Team with more than 13 years of experience in health and tech businesses which helped to create a product that can change lifes of special needs children. Our team clearly understands the struggles of the families, but we also understand the industry. Our greatest strength however is that we are a team of young therapists with an entrepreneurship heart.
We are on our way to turn special needs into special abilities and support millions of children and their families around the globe.
