GreenDay - Autism Behavior

GreenDay - Autism Behavior


New timeout timer and token economy app to help your children have a GreenDay!

Using this application can assist you in implementing a behavior plan for your children with or without autism.

Not just a token economy, GreenDay makes it easier to implement an ABA behavior plan by encouraging breaks and using reinforcement for up to three children. Helps keep the child's attention by making sounds and speaking their name. Includes a "timeout" timer for putting the child on yellow and red and keeps track of tokens banked. Provides detailed history for the past 31 days in a calendar view.

This application helps you implement and track the reinforcement that enables you to change your child's problem behavior.

We developed this application with input from the ABA therapist that we hired. Our family has been using the application for a year now, prompting UI improvements and feature development.

Although this application and the behavior plan was developed for a child with autism, it also works on our child that doesn't have autism.

IMPORTANT: Selecting an image icon for a child can cause an out of memory error, depending on the memory available in your device and the size of the image. The optimum image icon is 72 x 72 pixels.

Features:

The application supports up to three children.

Flick the child's picture icon up toward their bank to give them a token, and the app congratulates your child and tells them how many tokens that they have earned.

Long press on the child's bank to add or subtract money as they earn bonuses or make purchases.

Drag the child's picture icon to yellow to put the child in yellow, and the app warns the child to stay calm and follow directions.

Drag the child's picture icon to red to put the child in red, and the app lets the child know that they're on red. The app automatically puts the child into yellow when the red timer is up, and tells the child to apologize and restore the environment.

Press the child's bank to view a calendar of the past 31 days and view details for each day.

Press the child's red timer to have the phone suggest a break to prevent a meltdown.

Long press on the child's red timer to pause the timer, if the child leaves the designated area. Long press again to unpause the timer.

Suggestions:

Enter your child's name phonetically, so that the text-to-speach engine speaks your child's name correctly.

Enter a list of breaks from the settings screen.

Create family rules that when broken will put your child on yellow, or that will put them directly on red. Create a list of family goals that will earn them tokens.

The Behavior Plan:

My wife and I have blogged about how we use the application to implement our behavior plan, but you may want to talk to your applied behavior analyst to help develop a behavior plan for your child.

I found this app on AppBrain, and I love it. It's the best timeout timer that I've found, and it tracks rewards too. It has very unique features. My kids aren't autistic.

Easy to use!!! Great app!!!! Extremely easy to use. This is a great visual aid to assist in behavioral modifications, stoplight colors and a timer - excellent!! Voicing needs some finesse. The female voice needs some smoothing, less robotic. The male voice is awful and so is the tone of the voice. Also having problem with being able to minus money from each account. Really hope dev will make some updates (last one 9/13) soon!! I use this on my Nexus 7, Nextbook 8hd, Acer A500, and HTC One V - no issues at all!!

Poorly designed Difficult interface, tried following instructions that were hard to find, still couldn't get it to work or save anything, gave up and uninstalled it.
