Every family who read our book together reported less stress dealing with the next pain event.
This one of a kind book was created by three Moms for people who need pain management but are: too young, too memory challenged, confused by emojis, or whelmed by being asked to rate their pain on a 10 level scale.
Our book is the ONLY book in print helping you teach your loved one the words to tell the amount of pain they experience. Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Apple all carry our book. It is offered in print and as a kindle or ePub download. Put it on your iPad through iTunes so you are always ready to get the right help for pain. It’s just 4.3 Mb at $2.99.
Families using My Pain Alert(TM) Scale have saved time and effort getting a child or family limited communicator’s pain under control. Little children were able to direct their parents, so the best action could be done immediately. Older children came out of surgery requesting the exact pain management they needed, resulting in a shorter than previous hospital stay.
For most users: Start reading the My Pain Alert(TM) Stories which describe each pain level. Get even more practice with the scale by learning sign language for each level name.
Our field trial of 10 families experiencing repeat hospitalizations, and 5 families experiencing ordinary health needs all reported less stress with pain events after reading MPA together.
Medical personnel depend on family and close caregivers when someone can’t tell their level of pain. Practice with this book puts parent and child on the same page. Our scale words are quickly understood by patients and doctors .
Read their own words -how this book helps their children in our first blog: “Users Said.” We will add blogs about use with: stroke, autism, and alternative communication. Everyone needs help when in pain.

An ASHA Speech Language Pathologist can help your special learner get their pain management needs met using our tool. Go to "the Public". "Find a Professional" is near the bottom of ASHA's home page.
Are there other tools for parents to teach their child how to manage pain?
No. We took on this creative challenge because it was going to be years before our little guy had the working memory and experience base to use a typical pain scale to get his needs met.
Can I buy it in a store?
Not yet. We would like our purse size revision and disposable toys to be available in hospital gift shops, but need a guaranteed distribution agreement to make production feasible.
This is an updated, wipe clean set of our stories with easy instructions, ASL signs, and improved song. Families can use it while waiting to have their medical procedure. This process of learning effective pain management vocabulary is quick for many people. Each binder comes with brochures (puppet or Rx) about purchasing a MPA book for everyday use.
