Great update! Birdhouse for Autism allows data tracking and more for FREE! Available for Android!

The main part of my job is looking at apps. Lots and lots of apps. Birdhouse for Autism was one of the first apps I really worked with once joining the Smart Apps team, and I absolutely loved it. This app is a dream for any parent with a child on the Autism spectrum or really any child with special needs. Parents can easily record and track sleep, mood, poop, meltdowns, appointments and now even food intake. There is even an other section to allow personalization for whatever else a parent wants to record. This app is now available for FREE on Android! Yay! No excuses! If you are looking for a data tracking app for your kids, check out Birdhouse for Autsim.

There is an optional Premium Service available through the website interface

I am a huge advocate of find what works for each individual child. The best way to determine this is often by taking copious notes and tracking daily activities along with the corresponding mood. This can seem overwhelming. As a mother of a child on the spectrum, the last thing I have time for is to keep this huge chart of food and sleep and moods for my kid -- especially on the days where it just seems like my son is in constant meltdown mode. That is the beauty of the Birdhouse for Autism app. Not only is the app helpful, it is intuitive and easy to use. 

The app was created by an ingenious duo looking for a better way to help track data for their family. They understand what parents are looking for in a data tracking app for a child with Autism because that is their life. Not only have they developed an app they use, but they listen to customer feedback and are constantly looking for ways to improve and support the Autism community. One example of this, is the addition of tracking food in their latest updates.

Creating an account allows users to access the data from a computer or within the app on multiple devices. From the computer, users can access nutrition where any medication, supplement, vitamin or etc your child takes regularly can be recorded as well as Therapists where appointments can be recorded. There is the ability to sign up for premium access from the website. More information as well as free account creation can be found on the Birdhouse website.

I highly recommend checking out this great FREE app!
