6 Autism Apps for Kids and Parents

Autism Tracker Pro

Autism Tracker Pro

This application is an all-in-one service that helps families explore autism. There are multiple screens and each one is dedicated to focusing on a specific area. These include mood, behavior, and health. The app is for the family to keep track of what is important to the child with autism. It tracks patterns using graphs and other tools. Parents can add in their own screens to monitor behavior in a personalized way. The information can be sent to the patient's care team so they can advise at visits. This app was featured in Physicians Practice Journal in 2015 and they have continued to improve its function. The company invites parents to try the “lite” version of the app for free before purchasing. It is a fully functioning version, but it is restricted to 12 entries per item. Once the app is working well for the family, the new app can be purchased for $9.99. The existing information will be transferred over so there's no need to reenter it.
