We are neuroscience PhDs, medical doctors, former teachers, world-class software engineers, managers, employees with autism, and an overall diverse and passionate team! Empowered Brain was born of the vision of our founder Dr. Ned T. Sahin. We are all here to help you. In these uncertain times, we also rely on your help. Please spread the word.
Empowered Brain is made in the USA by a diverse team of passionate people. We are trying to stay afloat and make sense of these unprecedented times, just like your family. As always, our vision is to “Empower Every Brain”!
We are proud of our close partnerships with leading entities, and grateful for their help in shaping the company and our offerings.
Praised by Congress
We were featured by the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP), for our successful technology to assist people with autism to get jobs. The CDMRP is funded by the US Congress – outside and above the NIH.
80% of people with autism (even those who complete college) end up unemployed. Being chronically denied employment is damaging to mental health and dignity.The US Congress recognized that Empowered Brain teaches skills that open the gateway to employment (e.g., looking toward an interviewer/boss, self-calming, or mastering the transitions and routines of a workday). Through their Medical Research Program, they awarded a highly-competitive multi-year grant to us (the first time ever to a company not a university). With it, we improved and clinically tested Empowered Brain, toward unlocking the oft-hidden power of the autistic brain via digital job-focused training and on-the-job remote coaching.
We completed the grant project so successfully that the Government proactively reached out and featured us – first in their internal book of success stories, then on their publicly accessible website.
