Be a Beta Tester for AutismTrack

HandHold Adaptive® (the company behind iPrompts®) is seeking testers for its new, yet-to-be-released application, tentatively called AutismTrack.

The application runs on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, and is designed to be a powerful new journaling tool for parents of those with autism. After setting up a profile for an individual with autism, parents (or other caregivers) can easily track the individual’s behaviors on a daily basis. Daily interventions, like diets, supplements, therapies and medicines may also be tracked. With Apple’s simple, touch-screen interface, it takes only seconds, and you can do it from wherever you’d like.

If you are a parent of a child on the autism spectrum, and are interested in testing AutismTrack, please send an e-mail to betatests@handholdadaptive.com that includes the following information:
1. Your first and last name
2. Your device type (either an iPhone or iPod Touch is required to be part of the trial)
3. Your phone number
4. Your child’s age
5. On a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being a typical peer in his or her age group), how would you describe the developmental level of your child?
6. On a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being “most active”), how active are you in experimenting with diets, supplements, medicines and therapies?
For more information about the application and being a beta tester, please click here.

We are very excited about the launch of this product and hope that you will help HandHold Adaptive make AutismTrack the best application it can be to help your child.

    We have an I Pad now and my son is so into it that I don’t get a chance to use it. Any assistive technology that Austism speaks wants to beta test, please let me know! Jean Paul is 9 and probably behind his peers socially by a year. He is also having a hard time in math because it is abstract to him. We have him on dietary supplements and he has just started a GF/CF diet. He was diagnosed with Asperger’s in the fall of 2008.
    Thanks,

    We have an 11-year-old son with severe autism and seizures that seem to be increasing now that he’s reaching adolescence. As he shares a home with us and his natural Mom, as well as receiving care at school and at therapy, it makes keeping track of his diet and activities and responses very challenging. Communication from person to person is difficult, and often inconsistent. This application offers new hope as an easy-to-use, universal manner of keeping track of his progress and diet, which might enable us to better track the causes of not only his seizures, but also help him make as much progress as possible.

    The big question. If we join this BETA testing, as a group of caregivers who are all presently taxed to the limit, is the hardware provided or is there any means of subsidizing one unit (a used IPad or whatever it works on) for our child to carry from place to place with him while we test this product.

    We are very eager to be a part of this study, both for the betterment of our son’s life, and for the progress and eventual promotion of the software that could help so many others.

    This could offer help to so many.

    Thank you for your efforts,

    Jennifer Iacono
