The collaborative platform for Special Education Teachers
Autism Tracker’s works best for just one family or one special ed teacher. For several years we also maintained the app Birdhouse for Autism which supports a team of collaborators to work together. Teachers, parents, and therapists can document students’ behavior, therapy, and progress individually, then share their work with their team instantly. However, we are sorry for this, after several years of working hard to keep Birdhouse going, due to challenges related to the underlying technology platform, we had to close the Birdhouse service. We hope the Autism Tracker app for iPhone and iPad can be somewhat helpful for former Birdhouse users.

Apps for helping autistic kids socially and academically San Jose Mercury News:
Drennan says one of the greatest challenges for parents of an autistic child with flawed communication skills is knowing what’s bugging the child when he or she’s having a bad day. “They can’t tell you why they’re upset,” she says, “but this app helps monitor their behavior and with its feedback can help identify what could be the cause of the stress they’re feeling.”
Using several tools in the app to describe the child’s “Happiness” — “Not at all,” “Just a little,” or “Somewhat,” for example — as well as his activity level and even the weather outside, the Tracker lets a parent chart a kid’s behavior across a period of time. Often, says Drennan, a pattern will emerge to indicate what might be causing a child to act out. For example, a child may show signs of stress at the beginning of each week, or after a change in diet, or even during certain types of weather.
This app has been of great help tracking my child’s various episodes (frequency, cause, severity) and is so simple to use. I would absolutely recommend it!

Love how customizable it is! Perfect for challenging behavior tracking for a large caseload. Parents/Staff can track for me too and send the data remotely!!! This app completely changed the way I collect data (and do my “paperwork”)!

I am a BCBA trying this app both in the school setting and with helping to get more consistent data collection with private clients. Overall I have had good response. My four stars comes from the app occasionally closing itself while I am using it (switching screens etc). I do not lose my data so it is not a fatal flaw, just inconvenient to reopen when it happens.
