Autism East Midlands has won the Charity Times Award for Best Use of Technology. Its use of Brain in Hand has been selected from hundreds of entries from across the charity sector as it has successfully helped to transform the lives of its service users and their families, delivering significant operational improvements.
Implementing Brain in Hand as part of a Positive Behaviour Support programme across Autism East Midlands has changed the nature of incidents and the strategies used to support individuals. The length and severity of interventions have decreased and requirement for restraint has reduced. This has enabled staff to focus more time on proactive and positive development activities.
