ParentLink: Steegle.One's Communication Solution for Soar Autism Center

Soar Autism Center, based in Colorado and Arizona, provides a play-focused approach to autism therapy, aiming to improve outcomes for children with autism through integrated, multi-disciplinary services. The organization, founded by a physician entrepreneur and education expert, faced communication challenges as it grew. Traditional methods such as meetings and paper-based documentation were insufficient for their expanding needs. Steegle addressed these challenges by developing a custom AppSheet application named ParentLink.

Challenges

With Soar Autism Center’s rapid growth and multiple sites, the organization faced several key challenges:

  • Scalability: Traditional communication methods and paper-based documentation were not scalable or real-time.
  • Information Accessibility: Student information, staff profiles, handbooks, manuals, and other important documents were not easy for parents to access.
  • Secure Parent Communication: The need for a secure method to share progress updates and activities with parents while ensuring privacy and data security.

Solution

Steegle developed ParentLink, a custom AppSheet application, to streamline communication and information sharing between staff and parents. This application provided a secure, user-friendly platform for sharing progress updates and activities.

Implementation

The implementation of ParentLink involved several key steps:

  • Requirement Analysis: Steegle conducted detailed consultations with Soar Autism Center to understand their specific needs and challenges.
  • AppSheet Development: Utilizing AppSheet’s no-code platform, Steegle developed ParentLink tailored to Soar’s specific needs.
  • Testing and Feedback: The application underwent rigorous testing, and feedback from staff and parents was incorporated to refine the solution.
  • Training: Steegle provided comprehensive training to Soar’s staff to ensure smooth adoption and effective use of the application.

Features of ParentLink

  • Centralized Communication: ParentLink serves as a centralized platform where staff can securely upload and share information with parents.
  • Secure Photo Uploads: Staff can upload photos of children’s activities and progress securely. Each parent has access only to their child’s information, ensuring privacy.
  • Ease of Use: The application is intuitive, requiring minimal technical expertise from both staff and parents.
  • Real-Time Updates: Parents receive real-time notifications and updates, enhancing their involvement and engagement with their child’s therapy.
