Empowered Brain Helps

Reduce Anxiety

Our solution lets your child get familiar with new situations by virtually immersing in them in careful, periodic, safe “doses”. This increases predictability and reduces anxiety.

Improve Attention

Teaches players to engage with and focus on conversation partners. Through practice, players learn how to demonstrate that they are interested in the conversation.

Improve Social-Emotional Skills

Empowered Brain encourages key social skills like turn-taking, staying on task, controlling anxiety, verbalizing, and understanding how a peer or loved one may be feeling.

Press Coverage

Praise by the U.S. Army

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

“As a child psychiatrist, I see many individuals with autism or ADHD, and interact closely with their concerned parents. Empowered Brain excites me because it is a toolset based on technology not drugs, which empowers people to learn social skills that increase self-sufficiency.
