mytaptrack®

Teachers and schools simplify behavior tracking from taking long handwritten notes to the click of a button, while increasing the accuracy and options for support inside and outside the school. With better data and better communication, students have better outcomes.

Introduction

With mytaptrack®, schools can easily track behavior challenges or even medical side effects in the classroom when they occur, rather than trying to remember at inconvenient times and writing anecdotal reports. This improved data is reported real-time, allowing others both inside and outside the school to respond immediately to changes or challenges. With better data and better communication, students have better outcomes.

Problem

Doesn't every child deserve a chance to succeed?

problem

Behavioral data is critical in helping students reach their full potential. However, data collection is often slow and gathered by too many people with minimal communication. This affects the student getting help, and a teacher’s ability to support them. A 2019 survey by the American Psychological Association’s (CPSE) disclosed that 60% of teachers reported needing support with negative behaviors in the classroom. Simple and quick data collection is essential to understand behaviors and support the student’s education, especially when it comes to students with special needs and learning disabilities.

“In a study conducted by EAB Global, more than half of teachers said they see negative or disruptive behaviors at least several times a week, and 25 percent reported that they see tantrums or defiance several times each day.”

Solution

With mytaptrack®, data collection becomes as simple as the click of a button and is immediately available to the student’s entire support team. Completely customizable and easy-to-use, mytaptrack® is a new way for parents, schools and doctors to monitor exceptionally unique children with special needs. One click, two clicks or holding a click sends a message through the cloud to a HIPAA & FERPA-compliant mytaptrack online platform where behavior data can be charted and shared. Real-time data notifications are sent to the child's selected team of parents, teachers and doctors.

Impacts of mytaptrack®

Classrooms: For the team supporting the child in the classroom, symptoms and behaviors provide essential clues to help the child succeed. Tracking symptoms and behaviors at home and school with the mytaptrack® device allows the whole team to have the best information and provide better support.

Schools: Planning for classrooms, staffing and support in a school is challenging, especially if you don't have the data to drive decisions. For schools and districts, mytaptrack® allows for more data driven decision making, and cost saving changes to how children are supported.

ABA Support: mytaptrack® is designed for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) facilities, autism spectrum disorder centers, and all medical professionals providing diagnosis, treatment and therapy for children with disabilities. HIPAA-compliant mytaptrack® helps to monitor the effectiveness of treatments for kids with special needs.
