Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, April 4, 2014 9:30 AM

Charlie Southwell (aka @charliesaidthat) brought Brain In Hand to my attention. It's an app that can help those on the autistic spectrum function with difficult decision making, and provide decision making and help tools. It looks really fantastic! While my own son is learning coping techniques to use on his own, I could see this being something helpful for him in the future. Currently, it's available in the UK only, and not in the US, but they do hope to expand someday (let's hope so!). This is a brilliant use of mobile content and technology being used, and I applaud the efforts being done with this company!
