AutismTrack™ is a portable, customizable journaling tool that empowers caregivers of those with autism to easily track interventions, behaviors and symptoms.
Checkboxes allow daily recording of any therapy, medicine or diet. Simple “sliders” allow rating of any behavior or symptom (e.g., eye contact, aggression and echolalic speech).
With multiple reporting features, this information can then be reviewed and shared, to help parents and other caregivers of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) answer the ongoing and ever-puzzling question: “What seems to be working, and what’s not?”
For decades, parents have often felt powerless, confused, overwhelmed, and unsure of which approaches should be taken to help improve the lives of those they care for. Well-meaning educators, researchers, doctors, and friends suggest a variety of approaches, including therapy, pharmacology and dietary alterations, but it can be difficult for parents to know which combinations seem to make a difference in helping their loved ones to learn and grow.
AutismTrack™ gives parents, central figures in the autism community, more information on their search to discover the unique patterns and trends experienced by individuals with ASD.
The app includes the following powerful features:
- Fast Data Entry
It takes only a few minutes to enter the day’s information. AutismTrack™ doesn’t bog parents down with long surveys — information is entered in a simple, easily understood format.
- Custom Journaling
Caregivers can add their own interventions and behaviors to the standard data sets available within the app, and can add notes to supplement compliance checklists and sliding-scale behavior ratings.
- Multiple Caregivers
Multiple caregivers can track a single child, which is useful in achieving “consensus” around the child’s current level of performance, or in simply confirming whether or not medications were already administered for the day. Also, multiple profiles may be created within one account (e.g., to track several children). AutismTrack™ runs on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (an Internet connection is required).
- Emailable and Printable Reports
Tracked data is available in an emailable and printable form, so that caregivers can provide reporting to educators, researchers, doctors, and friends. Reports include Daily Log entries and Trend Analysis reports, where behaviors may be graphed and compliance with treatments may be monitored over periods of time.
- Server Based Data Storage
Caregivers who register to use AutismTrack™ can rest assured that if their device gets lost or breaks, data is recoverable through HandHold Adaptive’s secure server.
