Brain in Hand is an assistive technology designed to help individuals with autism to achieve more.
It is based on well-established therapeutic principles such as CBT, solution focussed therapy, and recovery based rehabilitation allowing the learning from these approaches to be turned into a set of patient centred strategies.
A cloud-based solution, Brain in Hand enables you to access detailed personalised support when and where you need it from your phone. You and your supporters can monitor usage, trends and success of interventions from a secure website.
Together this gives the confidence to do more things independently, opening up new horizons in daily life, education and work.
Brain in Hand’s unique design enables students to develop the kind of support that works best for them.
Students can identify situations where they have difficulty and plan strategies in advance. Smartphone technology means these are always available through the Brain in Hand App to refer to when needed and keep their learning on track.
DSA funding is available for students with:
- Autistic Spectrum Conditions
(including asperger syndrome and other pervasive developmental disorders, i.e. PDA & PDD-NOS)
- Brain Injury.
