  1. APP for IPAD

    I am a teacher for young children with developmental delays and disabilities, I would love to be able to use my IPAD while I'm in the classroom to track for multiple children but I have not come across a Birdhouse IPAD app, am I missing something or is there any possibility of this? Thanks

    Hi Megan, that’s a great suggestion. We’d LOVE to build an iPad app and eventually we will, but for the time being we are focusing our efforts on making our iPhone and Android apps as great as they can be.

    That being said, you can certainly use the iPhone app on your iPad (and for that matter, an Android app on an Android tablet or Kindle), with just a few extra steps.

    Below is a quick article on how to download our iPhone app to your iPad. It may not be 100% ideal, but it’s definitely better than nothing at all and many people enjoy it :-)

    Hope to have a better answer for you sooner than later!

  2. It were accessible to Autistic persons who wish to self-regulate.

    I'm an Autistic adult who'd like some sort of app that would help me keep track of this sort of thing on my own. Birdhouse is amazing, but sometimes I feel a little condescended by it since it's geared towards parents of Autistic kids.

    This is great feedback.
    I’m so sorry to hear that it gives you a condescending tone.
    We started with making the tool focused on adults looking after kids, as that was our personal need and what we knew best. We are trying to do a GREAT job at that before diverting our attention.
    That being said, we are also always looking for ways to make changes and learn more about how to accommodate more people who would like to use the tool.
    If you would like to send us a private message at owl@birdhousehq.com and share more specifics about what parts make you feel condescended to, how you currently use it that is helpful, and what are some changes we could make that would make it even more helpful, we’d love to hear about it and think about how when can incorporate that feedback into our plan.

    Absolutely! Great idea.
    This is definitely on our list. We have a few other big things in line ahead of it that I think you’re gonna like, but we will definitely get to this after that. We will update the status here as we get closer, so you know when it’s coming.

    You can now use the category Sensory, either in your list or accessed by using ‘Something Else’

    As you add different descriptions of sensory interventions or seeking behaviors or whatever details you are documenting, they will pre-populate.

    Then you can graph them in reports, see total counts during different periods, get a review of them sent in your weekly and monthly email summaries, and more.

    Let us know what you think and how we can make these more effective for you!

  6. Include duration for all activities

    Please include a way to document a duration (or an end time that calculates the duration) for an activity. Type, scope, duration and frequency of caregiver assessments, judgements, interventions are critical things we track.

    Great suggestion.
    We definitely understand how crucial these pieces are and what a valuable addition to the tool they will be.
    It is a big undertaking to properly implement these in a “smart” way so they can be applied to all of the different ways that people use this type of system, but we are working on it right now and it’s going to be a magnificent and empowering solution when we start to roll out these changes.
    I wish I could say we’ll have this available right away, but it’s on it’s way. Hopefully what we have is helpful to some degree without them, and I look forward to hearing how you like the solution we come up with when it becomes available.

    If there’s any way we can help with anythign else, in the interim, of course, always let us know.

    :-)

  9. Differentiate current and ended nutrition schedules visually in the nutrition list

    When changing the dose for a nutrition, there is a popup that explains how to keep the history by setting an end date for the current dose and creating a new schedule with the new dose.

    It would be nice if the lines with end dates in the past had different formatting in the nutrition table.

    In the following picture, one of the highlighted lines has an end date in the past and the other one is current, but that is not obvious. Maybe the ended line could be stroke through or colored with a lighter gray to make it…

  10. Locating others in our area...

    My husband is in the Air Force and as such we have had to move to a new area several times. Each time I've wished there was an "E Harmony" for families of special needs children. Specifically to identify and match with families that have similar challenges.
