To celebrate the conclusion of World Autism Awareness Week we are running our fourth Minecraft marathon on Monday 3rd April, from 10:00am until 10:00pm – and we’d like your help.

Our goal is to play Minecraft for 12 hours and create a world featuring Brain in Hand offices, but bigger, brighter, with stained glass windows (as we know this is tricky) and anything that comes to mind!  Brain in Hand team members Tom, Will, Jono and Francis will be building all day, but we’d love it if you could join in at any time for as little or as long as you can – 5 minutes or 5 hours!

To join in email minecraft@braininhand.co.uk to receive logon details.  It’s free to do and will be an autism-friendly space with players and moderators present.

The aim is to have lots of fun, but also raise funds for two autism charities –  Autism East Midlands, a brilliant charity founded by a group of parents wanting to make a difference; and Positively Autistic who run an online radio station to educate and create positive autism awareness.

Please sponsor the event on our just giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Brain-in-Hand

P.S.  To keep up to date with the action, we’ll be live-streaming the game and sharing a webcam of our marathon on www.twitch.tv/braininhand

  • 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.

  • I wish that there had been something like this when I was a headteacher of a challenging school for those individuals who were either autistic or suffered from anxiety. It would have added another level of support.

  • “We can use Brain in Hand to help people to achieve those outcomes and use the data from the system to demonstrate this: You put the same things into Brain in Hand that are being measured by the council.”
