Brain In Hand - personal technology for independent living

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.
