Brain in Hand

Assistive technology for people with ASD


Living with autism, a mental health condition or learning difficulty can lead to problems making decisions, controlling emotions and choosing appropriate behaviour.

Brain in Hand is an on-demand support system that gives people access to detailed personalised support from their smartphone, putting the individual more in control of their own support. Always available, it gives easy access to reminders, notes, coping strategies and a team of trained professionals to give help when and where it’s needed.

Key features of the Brain in Hand include:

  • The ability to organise your day into diary events helping to develop organisational skills and provides structure and routine.
  • Develop your own individual solutions to the barriers you may face
  • Using a secure website, you can create, update and edit your solutions, and have instant access on your smartphone or tablet for when they are needed.
  • You can manage your own anxiety regarding both planned and unexpected events using a traffic light system on your app (which also initiates facilitator support if needed)
  • You can also view your timeline of activity, which gives you a record of your self‐management strategies,and helps to identify how difficulties were previously resolved.
