Evidence Based Intervention for Parents
Make Every Interaction Count
A Personal Digital Trainer
We unpacked evidence-based interventions into practical parenting skills.
Each strategy is taught through a four-step interactive module. Check out our video examples:
Step 1 Learn
Watch and experience our interactive animations to learn a new skill.
Step 2 Practice
View and analyze videos of other parents interacting with their children.
Step 3 Implement
Implement the new skill you learned. Upload a video of you and your child interacting. This video will remain private. Find inspiration in our Library of practical and fun ideas.
Receive personal feedback via synchronized annotations on your video from the clinical team of SocialMind.
What is SocialMind?
My name is Keren, and I am the founder of SocialMind. I am also a pediatrician, PRT (Pivotal Response Training) certified, and a mother of three children, two of them have autism. SocialMind was designed to train you, the parent, to become one of the experts providing the highest standard of care for your child within the everyday activities of your daily life. We broke-down interventions into practical skills, dismantled them from all the professional and confusing language, and wrapped them up in short, interactive, and fun learning modules! All of this is available at your own pace.
How Does it Work?
With SocialMind, you’ll learn skills that will help you motivate your child to communicate, and show your child that it’s fun to take part in life.
New skills are learned via short, fun, interactive modules.
View and analyze videos of other parents interacting with their child. Some parents that previously succeed via SocialMind were happy to provide you with their experience.
Implement the new skill you learned. Upload a video of you and your child interacting. This video will remain private. Find ideas and inspiration for activities in our adaptive menu.
To make it even better, you can upload videos of yourself trying to implement; You will get personal feedback as synchronized annotations on your video. These videos will remain private.
Who Can Use SocialMind?
SocialMind’s first course was built for parents of non-verbal or minimally verbal children. This means that if your child requests using three words or less (i.e.- “Give me water”,”Want juice”, “Apple”), or doesn’t request using language at all, our course can help you. Some children can script long poems or stories, but when they address another person to request: only use one or two words. SocialMind’s course can help them as well. In the future, we plan to launch many more courses, directed for parents of children all over the spectrum.

Experience. Love. Science.
IIn 2014 we founded the Keren-Or Telehealth Center to train parents at home, it later metamorphosed into SocialMind. With our proven, research-based intervention methods, any child can receive the best possible care. The challenges faced by families with autism at home are well known to us; we know the barriers and challenges parents face when implementing interventions Through telehealth, we have practices these processes with parents for endless hours, and we have watched the children develop their communication skills and edge into their typical everyday lives. Our parents and children matter to us deeply, and we will do everything in our power to help as many children as possible reach their potential. To assist achieving these goals, SocialMind was supported by the Israeli Innovation Authority and the by EU Horizon in 2021 and 2022.
