The SpeakYourMind Foundation, based in Providence, RI, is a nonprofit organization spun out of the BrainGate lab at Brown University and Massachusetts General Hospital. We create, distribute, and support assistive communication technologies for individuals who are unable to effectively communicate due to neurological injury and disease. Our teams of passionate student and professional volunteers work closely with our clients to build a solution that meets their needs from the ground up.
- Reliable and easy to use eye and head tracking
- Intelligent switch access
- Adaptive motion-based input
- Practical brain-computer interfaces
- Customizable communication apps
… all using adapted off the shelf hardware - this is what we do.
We get it
We understand your frustration with the existing alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) products on the market. Your frustration and your courage is why SpeakYourMind Foundation exists. With your help, we intend on making the days of outrageously expensive, unreliable, antiquated, and difficult to use AAC devices a thing of the past.
If you, a friend, or a loved one is struggling to communicate please reach out to us. We work with clients and their families living with:
- ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease)
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Muscular dystrophy
- Or anyone with motor and speech limitations that needs our help
