Designed so your child can learn to complete tasks independently: (1) Set up custom tasks and determine the time allotted for each step; (2) Help your child follow each step; (3) With practice, your child can learn how to complete the steps on his or her own.

Ratings and Reviews

No information on registration/cost = ???


Must register to use, which I have done and is fine, but how much does the full version cost? Support page online cannot be found. There is no information in the app description mentioning need to register or cost. There are some pluses. I like the ability to add multiple profiles, I like the easy to make schedules with visual timer for each step. The communication boards are lacking- you cannot adjust the size of the buttons or change background color, font etc. It is very basic. I like the notes section where you can communicate back and forth with others. If I knew what price the full version was I might be able to better say whether the app is valuable or not but I don't plan on investing any more time creating schedules or boards, as I registered for a trial account, and have no idea how long that trial account even lasts- the registration page does not explain any of these important details.
