A token board app is an easy road to success?

Develop an app- comic stripAn easy road to success? According to this comic strip, simply develop an app. Hahaha. When we came up with our idea for a token board replacement app three years ago, we never guessed how much would be involved.

Fortunately, our vision for 123TokenMe was to help those that lived and worked with autism and other special needs. And it does. Here is an email we just received:  

“123TokenMe is phenomenal in it’s simplicity and effectiveness. It changed one of my twins’ frustration with mainstream kindergarten to determination, then ultimately satisfaction in his ability. It was a great and marvelous thing to witness. I even used it for another child’s behavioral issues. I was stunned at how well it worked.” 

Does that make 123TokenMe worth $16 billion, as in the comic strip? No, of course not. It makes it worth far more in the eyes of every parent or teacher who has used it with this kind of success.

Excitement for 123TokenMe!

Screen-Shot-2013-10-17-at-10.20.05-AM-300x300Our favorite 123TokenMe comment from the FABA conference? It had to be Jessica’s: “If I were wearing socks, they’d be rolling up & down right now!” She explained that a favorite professor said this whenever he was really excited about something new.

 

Jessica went on to say that she was thrilled to learn about 123TokenMe- no more making old-fashioned laminate and velcro token boards. Plus, a tool that would engage her students while improving behaviors, and take data in the background.

 

Her autism center just purchased 40 iPads, so she was excited to share with her co-workers. Do you hear that noise? Sounds like lots of socks rolling up and down!

Tap the student icon which brings up your student list.
Tap the blue arrow button next to the student you wish to delete. This will take you to student info.
Tap the student’s name. This will bring up a popover with a red “Delete Student” button. Tap this, and your student is gone.
Deleting a student sure sounds drastic, so hopefully it’s for a happy reason. Such as they no longer need assistance.

Screen-Shot-2013-07-24-at-1.57.05-PM-300x300A 123TokenMe user just called. Her family was on vacation when they realized, “We need a token board.” They searched for an app. Before they knew it, 123TokenMe was on their iPhone ready to assist their daughter.

 

Her question involved changing the number of tokens. An easy answer: Simply tap the student name. A screen pops up where all token system aspects (number of tokens, reminder time, token type, and background) can be modified. Additionally, target behaviors can be added from this screen. Now, back to your vacation.
