Keynote Lecture at Google: “Wearables in Healthcare” Annual Event, organized by Medstro
Keynote lecture explaining how Brain Power‘s software tools transform wearable computers to help children with autism learn life skills crucial to self-sufficiency. During the keynote, Dr. Ned T. Sahin reveals and demonstrates a new tool for the first time. This was Dr. Sahin’s 3rd keynote and 8th talk invited by Google, amongst two dozen public talks since founding Brain Power ~1.5 years ago.
Opening lines of the talk: “Brain Power’s tools help people with autism along their personal and unique journey toward self-sufficiency, and beyond, and give their parents structured, numerical, and objective reports on how those children are doing, toward their own personalized goals. Our software is based in cutting-edge brain science from Harvard and MIT, and runs on modern wearables like Google Glass…”.

What parents are saying…
“The complexity and differences in ability and skills from one person to the next requires the intervention of technologies that allow for the flexibility and uniqueness of each individual. Thank you for championing the needs of each individual and finding a way to support their continued growth in skills and learning.” — Tempe, Arizona
“This is the best hope ever to improve my son’s life.” — Stoneham, Massachusetts
“I am incredibly impressed. I think I am most impressed with how it encourages interaction, by allowing the user to look up and make eye contact while using the program on Google glass. The ability to have immediate feedback on reading emotion will be invaluable to ASD children. Also, for children like my daughter, who are technology driven, this is ideal, because it provide highly desired reward for a desired action. That’s a win-win!! Keep up the amazing work!” — Portsmouth,NH
“This tool seems to be exactly what my daughter needs.” — Nashua, NH
“I am a dad who believes strongly that autism can be unlocked . I have the sweetest 9 year old , and your application could help him to reach far beyond his potential.” — Lucasville, Nova Scotia
