We’re thrilled launch the Brain Power blog, your source for discussion about autism spectrum disorder (ASD), ADHD, and other social-emotional challenges!
What to Expect in this Blog
Our objective is to encourage conversation and awareness about the barriers that prevent individuals from achieving happy self-sufficiency. As a community, we can discuss these topics to ensure that those who face incredible challenges every day have a voice throughout society. In that sense, in addition to helping you — the parents, educators, therapists, and individuals with ASD/ADHD — we can also improve our own understanding, and therefore improve our solutions.
So what will we cover?
While there is no shortage of topics to discuss, we’re most excited to release a series of blog posts from Julie Esris, Brain Power’s animator who is on the spectrum. In her musings, she’ll discuss anything from the severe struggles she has encountered with ASD to movie recommendations for autistic individuals. Keep an eye out — her writing is fantastic!
We’ll also cover our flagship product, Empowered Brain — the world’s first wearable system that helps people with autism or ADHD learn the life skills crucial for happy self-sufficiency. We’ll discuss the basics of how it works, why it works, and what you can expect.
You can also look forward to posts about:
- The science behind autism and ADHD
- Insight from our engineers, neuroscientists, and educators
- Facts and info regarding ASD and ADHD
- What Brain Power is like
- And much more!
A Note on Language…
There are many ways to describe a person who has autism. For example, there’s “autistic,” “with autism,” “who has ASD,” etc. We know people have their preferences. At Brain Power, and in this blog, we mix up our phrasing. We don’t want to offend anyone. We just want to help people improve their lives!
Want to Get Involved?
We welcome your comments, questions, and suggestions! Keeping an open dialogue is the best way for us to determine what you need and how we can help. Whether you agree, disagree, have insight to offer, or simply want to point out a typo, feel free to comment.
