The big SEL challenge

We know that times are especially hard for students with invisible neural challenges. Perhaps you’re struggling with at-home learning, and are worried that your child has fallen behind on SEL (social-emotional learning) skills, but you don’t have time to devise an SEL plan.

Our SEL solutions

Empowered Brain™ is designed to teach social-emotional learning (SEL), and graduate players to new levels of independence. Using a durable, wearable device, kids play games on their own or with a partner- either in-person or remotely- in order to learn important life skills!

The Empowered Brain™ apps

Empowered Brain features a set of interactive, augmented-reality social-emotional learning games. Extensive scientific research has shown that playing our science-based games for 10 minutes a day provides a measurable improvement in SEL skills for people with autism, ADHD, and other social-emotional challenges.


Face2Face is designed to help your child learn to maintain a face-directed gaze during conversation. Over the course of five different levels of progression, each with fewer gamification elements, your child learns to engage with others!

Emotion Charades

In Emotion Charades, your child plays with you or a partner to discover what facial expressions are tied to different emotions. The game easily steps your child through complex concepts, first introducing them to expressions, then introducing the idea of emotions, and finally aiding with perspective-taking. The end result is a richer understanding of the others’ emotions.

Transition Master

With Transition Master, parents and teachers can capture 360 environments, which the player can then explore at their own pace and in their own time. The gamified elements encourage the player to explore and master their environment. This can be vital when it comes to new spaces like a new classroom or school!

Happy Place

Happy Place

Anxiety and tantrums can strike at any time, let alone during these wildly uncertain times. A calming scene can help you escape and get out of the stress of a moment – a Happy Place! With our library of interesting 360-degree scenes, your child can be immersed in a favorite Happy Place to seek refuge. Step inside this digital time-out when occasionally needed!

Play with Faces

Play with Faces

The face is where evolution put data about people’s feelings, thoughts, intentions, trustworthiness, and more. Yet, for many on the spectrum, looking at faces can be confusing, stressful, or just neglected. Play With Faces reverses all that. With it, your child has an excuse to look at faces, and it is fun: they get decorated in real time.

Paint My World

Paint My World

In Paint My World, players see their world automatically transformed as they look around through the glasses and flip through filters. Some of these filters make a sensory-reduced world in real-time, to bring calm; other make the familiar novel again – encouraging healthy exploration. Paint your world and simplify sensory experiences!

Web portal for parents, teachers, and therapists

The “Empowered Brain” apps on the smartglasses stream data in real time to an advanced, custom-built data analytics portal that is hosted in the cloud.

Our design approach


Game-elements map to desired skills. These mechanics encourage, acknowledge, and reward the types of behaviors that each game is designed to teach.

Level & Progress

Unlike most systems, as students level up, gamification elements reduce. The result is progress oriented towards indepedence. You’re on the app to get off the app!


Our approach embraces state of the art neuroscience, and yet centers on the human nature of social interactions in practical, daily reality.

What your child will learn

Autism affects 3.5 million families in the US alone, and is a complex spectrum. Each person is unique.  We have conducted research studies for years to identify areas of focus. Based on all this, we have identified several key educational challenges that face a large percentage of children and adults on the spectrum, and have focused our tools on them:


New routines can cause anxiety. Our solution allows for easing transitions by virtual immersion in periodic, safe “doses”. This helps reduce anxiety in real-world transitions. 

Social-Emotional Skills

Connecting with others is crucial for developing meaningful relationships. We develop key social skills like taking turns, staying on task, verbalizing, and understanding how others may be feeling.

Whole-body Listening

Players learn how to apply proper body language, make eye-contact, and demonstrate interest in the conversation. This enables them to engage with & focus on conversaion partners.


Empowered Brain is a powerful learning technology, in the classroom and at home
