About


Our Vision

We strongly believe in the inherent intellectual aptitude of the special ability community and are fundamentally committed to actualizing the full potential of all neuro-atypical brains.



Our Mission

The Empowered Brain Institute is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization established to engage in science, education, and advocacy toward the full realization of human mental potential. We conduct studies and partner with parents, educators, and medical professionals to transform the way cognitive differences are perceived and treated by society.

Our work includes:

  • Generating public awareness campaigns
  • Supporting parents and educators toward meeting high academic expectations
  • Providing skill-based workshops for children and individuals on and off the spectrum
  • Leading research studies that leverage recent advances in science and technology
