A great tool for kids with difficulties

I learned about this iPod/iPad/iPhone app today through a networking group on LinkedIn and I am so impressed with this tool. It’s called Behavior Tracker Pro and Skill Tracker Pro and while it may require some discipline and a learning curve for the adults, it seems like an amazing gauge for kids who are struggling with the frustrations that come with developmental delays and autism presentations.

So often I hear parents who are frustrated and I can see how this tool could truly help everyone; the parents, the teachers and the kids. It removes some emotionality, it uses a clear programmed and scientific approach and has useful graphing to visually see progress and share information.

    Thank you for sharing!! Can you please tell me what the name of the group that you belong to on LinkedIn where you found this. I would love to join. Thank you so much!

  2. @Kevin Thanks for your note! That was on NAMI (http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=135759); it appears that the company itself has a BTP users group there (http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=2417027).
