Posted on: March 12th, 2014

The Friendship Circle invites you to enter their Great Bike Giveaway!

The contest is already underway and will end at 11:59 AM on March 25, 2014.  The drawing will be held and the winner announced on March 26th!

Each bike page has a space where users can enter the contest. Submit a picture of your child with special needs along with a short explanation of why your child needs an adaptive bike.

There are two ways to win:

1) Most Nominations - One bike in each contest will be given away to the entry with the most nominations. Nominations are received from friends and family clicking the “nominate button” on your post.  You must have a minimum of 50 nominations to qualify.

2) Random Drawing - All the remaining bikes will be placed in a drawing. To be eligible for the drawing each submission must be nominated by at least 50 friends and family members.

Spread the Word!  By asking people for nominations, participants will draw more visitors to the Great Bike Giveaway Contest and increase the amount of donations. This in-turn will add more bikes to the raffles and give more children with special needs a chance to win a special bike.

App Review: Birdhouse for Autism

Posted on: January 7th, 2014 No Comments

Birdhouse for Autism is a free web and mobile based autism management app.  It is designed by Ben Chutz, parent of a child on the autism spectrum, to help you organize the important information related to your child’s care. Birdhouse enables you to keep track of medications and supplements, therapies and therapists, and easily track your child’s behaviors and daily activities.  Birdhouse’s most important use, though, is to find patterns  in your child’s everyday life and to track correlations so that you can see what’s helping and what needs to be changed.

This app is very user-friendly and intuitive.  Posting to it is as easy as clicking the green “Post A New Activity” button; selecting an activity type; and, entering your information.

I especially like being able to take my iPad to a doctor or therapy appointment and easily sharing the information collected.  Using actual data rather than relying solely on memory, we identify probable causes and effects and make adjustments as needed.
