It could happen at home, school, the grocery store or a restaurant. Meltdowns are stressful for both child and adult, but Dr. Baker’s No More Meltdown app can help! His popular book gives the tools to deal with and prevent out-of-control behavior. Now you can have those tools with you in the moment to help you prepare your child for the situations as they arise.
Dr. Baker has teamed with SymTrend, a popular source for electronic diaries, to create an app and a website for you to follow his four-step model:
- Manage your own feelings so you can calmly help your child.
- Learn strategies to deescalate and soothe your child in the moment.
- Understand common triggers to challenging behaviors.
- Create plans to anticipate these triggers and prevent future problem behaviors.
Use the specially designed SymTrend electronic diary to record triggers to meltdowns and problem behaviors. Send the data to the SymTrend/No More Meltdown website (http://www.symtrend.com/nmm) for analysis to identify which situations are most likely to trigger problem behaviors for your child.
Use the website to:
- Analyze the data - understand the behavior patterns, the likely triggers and consequences that maintain the problem behaviors.
- Consult more detailed versions of Dr. Baker’s prevention plans.
- Keep an electronic health diary to track changes in treatments and major events.

Waste of money
I bought this app with the idea that I could use the app on the go when I needed to log in data. Instead I am directed to go to the website to log in data. The app doesn't allow me the function to log behaviors. To me the app seems like a way to collect money for website access. Very disappointing.
Nice App. Good for when you're always "on the go" with students. Hope there will be added updates.
The book is an excellent resource, so I decided to try the app. In no way is this an outline of the book, more of a refresher. Very basic tools to record data. User interface is low level and quality is lacking. Updates need to include the ability to track data on more then one child at a time. Price is a little high at 10.99 in comparison with other data tracking apps available.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
