What does it do?

Therapy for autism costs an average of $120 an hour. By providing some of this therapy through software, we can provide access to many therapy lessons for less than 1% of the normal cost.

Why do we need it?

Kids that get the therapy they need live longer, are more likely to get a job, and are generally better off. Lessons that train memory, attention, and language can be provided affordably to increase global mental healthcare access.

Who is it for?

While our target audience is children between the ages of 2 and 7, we can fill a substantial gap in mental healthcare for any users of ABA therapy who need affordable access to the cognitive lessons within that therapeutic lens.

What makes it stand out from the crowd?

Some apps already exist, but children can make “progress” by swiping randomly. By using discrete trial training, preference assessments, and only advancing lessons once the child is performing above 80%, we teach by the books.

What’s next?

We need to secure funding for our MVP through Kickstarter. We have 25 lessons planned which is already over 1000 hours of therapy. 10% of our funding goes back to the autism community. More neurodiverse lessons require more R&D.
