Autism Tracker Pro
Sometimes we have challenging days with our autistic children, whether it’s melting down, running away, fixating on something, choosing not to eat, or refusing to move on to the next activity. Track & Share Apps has created a great educational app, Autism Tracker, that helps parents, teachers, and therapists monitor behavior, mood, diet, and even weather to prepare for those challenging days.
This app can help you track patterns in your child’s behavior, mood, or environment that may be affecting his actions. By knowing the patterns, you can work together with teachers to come up with ways to prepare for situations and help your child through them.
Customizable and Mobile
I love this app for its customization and mobility – I can take it anywhere and track my son’s mood and behavior all day! The app includes a calendar and an overview of different categories. You can also add items that are specific to your child, like “Diet” or “Sensory Issues.”
Get a Quick Visual Overview
After entering each day’s categories, you can easily view them in the Overview section to get a quick review of your child’s mood, stress, and other information you’re tracking.
Compare for Patterns
With the graph feature, parents can compare days and see if there are patterns in behavior or mood.
Use Autism Tracker to Ease Transitions
Once parents have tracked a month or two of behavior, they can compare weeks and then look at an entire month to see if patterns emerge.
A child might be more stressed at lunch time because of eating lunch in the cafeteria with loud noise, like my son was. Or they may have difficulty transitioning from school to home in the afternoons.
This process can help parents come up with strategies to ease these transitions and hopefully make it less stressful for the child.
Track Multiple Users and Share Info
Users can also share information and track several people on one device. For example, if a teacher needs to track a few students, they can keep up with all of them from one device.
