Buy Brain in Hand direct

Brain in Hand software costs from £45 per month and can be bought directly from us. Please get in touch and we can talk you through the options.

Your software licence will include all of Brain in Hand’s features and unlimited storage for your personalised solutions. The software can be linked to an existing support provider or family member of your choice.

The Brain in Hand support system is so much more than just software. There are additional elements that we recommend adding, as they make a huge difference:

Professional set-up
To help you get the most out of Brain in Hand, one of our trained experts will work with you one to one. During your personal session, they will listen to the challenges you face and train you how to use Brain in Hand to overcome them. The price for this varies depending on how much time you need. A typical cost for two separate face to face support sessions (2 hours each) is £280. For many of our clients this is an invaluable part of their journey towards independence.

Remote support from an approved partner
We work with the National Autistic Society and other partners to provide remote support to our users when they need it. The trained team are there to give you extra help when you request it. They will provide you with telephone or text support to help get your day back on track. For as little as £45 per month, you can access 50 hours of on call support per week.

Government funding

Brain in Hand is approved by Access to Work, Disabled Students Allowance, Personal Budgets or Education, Health and Care Plans.

If you are eligible for one of these schemes, please get in touch and we will supply you with the right information to take to your provider to help you receive a funded Brain in Hand licence. Please call 01392 247909 or email info@braininhand.co.uk.

People in some parts of the UK are given Brain in Hand as part of the support service provided by their local council, healthcare provider, autism charity, school or university.

If you are supported by any of these organisations and you would like them to provide you with Brain in Hand, please share details of our website and ask them to get in touch with us at info@braininhand.co.uk.

  • Brain in Hand has helped me to solve all sorts of problems by myself, which has really built my confidence. For example, I have an issue with eye contact when I talk with friends. To solve this, I plan in advance what I can say to a person, which is something I put into my Brain in Hand.
