A scientifically-proven learning platform created by education and healthcare specialists
Empowered Brain® is a growing suite of applications that runs on lightweight, computerized glasses.
It uses augmented reality and artificial intelligence to build skills relevant to self-sufficiency in people with autism, ADHD, and other brain-related challenges.
Overview of the Empowered Brain® Solution
Overviews of some of our current apps:
Face2Face guides the user to pay attention to faces, and makes a rewarding game out of eye contact by giving points and exciting cartoon rewards when the user looks toward a partner through the lightweight computerized glasses.
In Emotion Charades, users tilts their head to choose the emoji that matches their partner’s expression, strengthening their emotion literacy. The two-player game scripts a dialogue and set of prompts for the teacher/parent, to assure deeper levels of emotional processing and foster a connection with the student.
This app provides an immersive 360 degree experience that helps familiarize users with new places before visiting them in real life.
Human-Centric Use of Technology
The technology is the enabler, and the gamification provides structure and motivation, but the real focus is the human-human interactions we foster and the confidence that succeeding in them brings.
“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.”Sara
“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!”
“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.”
