“This is the most eye contact- steady eye contact – I’ve seen in a long time from him”

“Empowered Brain just seems to be much more natural than any other product that I’ve seen out there. They’re not holding a device and looking away from their teacher or instructor, they’re looking directly at the instructor, which I really like.”

“I’ve never seen Jack’s eye gaze be as intent and focused as it has been with those glasses, in his entire 18 years of life.”

“I cried when he used [Empowered Brain], because he was looking at me differently … I realized he had never really looked at me before in his life.”

“This student definitely has some attention difficulties normally, but when he put those glasses on, he immediately started focusing. The hands went quiet, his feet weren’t moving, and the focus was dead on.”

“This is a very different [individual] than what we’re used to. He’s a lot calmer than he usually is. Much more well behaved […] If there was something he didn’t want on his face, it would be across the room […] With this, he’s very relaxed.”

“My son came over to me and began telling me what he did. He was looking right at me. It was surreal. It was the first time that he really ‘saw’ me. He’d looked at me before but this time he was really trying to establish a connection with me.”

“Typically with technology – iPad and iPhone – the child is looking down for the reward. With Empowered Brain, the child is looking up. And looking at you!”

Parent of a child on the spectrum

“It has worked out very well [in our school]. … They love it. … It also has not been a distraction. Even though I am spending some quality time with the student, before and after playing the game, I am able to address the other students as well.”
