The only clinically-validated apps you can buy for life skills to empower people with autism

In one of our many apps, Emotion Charades™, the autistic adult or child looks through the glasses and sees an emoji floating on either side of the partner’s face, then tilts her/his head to chose the one that matches the facial expression for points and rewards. Meanwhile, the software automatically monitors game performance as well as body language or signs of stress.

Social-Emotional Learning

Our apps help your child or student learn social-emotional skills, master transitions, and connect with you. We know the soft skills are the hard skills™, and can help your child build skills for happy self-sufficiency.

Includes Google Glass

The $1500 wearable computer headset is included in your kit. Glass is an amazing computer. Use it for Empowered Brain and/or other purposes. 

Web Dashboard

The Empowered Brain web dashboard gives you rich data on your child or student. Generate progress graphs or automated IEP reports. It is a powerful platform.

Plans and Pricing

Empowered Brain™ is based on neuroscience from MIT and Harvard, and draws on the newest in technology including artificial intelligence, wearable computers, and augmented reality. Our team of talented individuals (several with autism) are working very hard to provide the most advanced and useful experience for you.

We have gotten out into the world and spent time with hundreds of children and adults on the spectrum, and their families and teachers — to refine the product so it actually works for them, and for you. Your purchase will fuel our continued ability to serve you and the community. Please remember that our prices include the cost of Google Glass. (If you can supply your own Glass, contact us for the software at a very low cost.) Thank you warmly! Empower Every Brain™!

Unlocking the Power of the Brain

Empowered Brain™, the flagship product of Brain Power, aims to empower children and adults all along the autism spectrum to teach themselves practical life skills, and assess their progress numerically.

What Others Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us; hear directly from families like yours or fellow teachers!

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


Silicon Valley Bank, Mother of non-verbal young man 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.”


General Education Teacher, Plymouth, Massachusetts

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


Mother of a girl on the spectrum

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


Special Education Teacher, Duxbury, Massachusetts

“I was getting a little emotional during your presentation [about Empower Me], because it’s THAT amazing to me”


Chief ABA Therapist for a full-service clinic

“I’ll never forget: I could see him getting excited, and feeling good about it.. Then he stood up and he put his arms up and he said, ‘I feel like I’ve broken out of an autism-free prison'”

Our Philosophy

Assessment and Training in One

Most tools either assess a condition or try to improve it. Brain Power’s approach is to make systems that assess and train; and repeatedly monitor along the way to assess the training. We make integrated systems that are game-like, rapid, affordable, and based in neuroscience. The unprecedented depth of data intelligently fuels next generations of our systems.

Cutting-edge technology

Our products are based on neuroscience innovations and technological advances from MIT and Harvard. We are utilizing Glass, artificial intelligence, machine learning, therapeutic game principles, big data, and other technologies to uncover and surmount the secrets and challenges of the human brain in ways never before possible.

Brain and Heart

We believe in the transformative power of technology, yet at the core of all our products is the human-human experience. Technology should bring us together, and help us integrate with society and family, not pull us apart. Brain Power’s apps reward and encourage human interactions, and skills that make social interchange smoother.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my unique child be able to wear it, and use it?

Likely yes. We have published multiple scientific research papers demonstrating that children and young adults on the autism spectrum find the Empowered Brain system easy to use, tolerable, engaging, safe, and desirable for use at home and at school. This includes young children and adults, verbal and non-verbal. Parents tell us routinely that they are surprised their child uses the computerized glasses, even if she/he doesn’t allow sunglasses. It is possible that it has something to do with the fact their generation are digital natives — and that sunglasses can’t turn the parents into cartoon characters, nor give the children points and microsuccesses!

What is your refund policy?

We offer no-questions-asked refunds to all customers within 15 days after delivery of your Empowered Brain system. If you are not satisfied with our product, then simply send us an email and we will refund your purchase as soon as we receive your headset. Our goal has always been to create a happy, thriving community. 

When will my Empowered Brain system arrive?

We are currently allowing the third wave of pre-orders for Empowered Brain. If your order is placed while this wave is open, your system will be delivered before the new school year starts in the fall. You will also receive multiple communications and updates before the delivery date. You will be able to follow the process closely and be included in the inside scoop on what is happening inside the magic factory at Brain Power! You will receive training videos and a quick-start training course online, to prepare your whole family or school staff to get the most out of Empowered Brain. 

My child wears glasses. Will this system work with her/his glasses.

Yes, in most cases Google Glass can fit over existing eyeglasses. Only very wide frames seem to get in the way. Also, depending on the prescription, she/he may be able to use Glass without glasses and still be able to see the image in the screen. 

Will my child/student get addicted to using Empowered Brain and be distant from the world?

Don’t worry! First of all, our software runs on a heads-up wearable computer (Glass). Unlike an iPad or smartphone, in which the users look down and avoid the world, with Empowered Brain they look up and into the world. In addition, our software encourages them to interact — indeed they can only achieve points and rewards by having social interractions with others.

Also, our philosophy is to slowly reduce the gamification elements as users improve on the skills each module teaches. That way, as they improve they get used to practicing the skill themselves with less and less assistance. Our goal is always self-sufficiency

Finally, we recommend using Empowered Brain with your child/student for 20-40 minutes per day. It is a fun, educational device designed for specific coaching sessions. It is not something that needs to be worn all the time. 

Parents and teachers have told us they feel more connected and in touch with their children than ever before.
