Company President Shares Efficient Therapy Strategies

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (Jan. 13, 2014) – Jeff Blackwood, CEO and president of ABPathfinder, LLC, will speak at the 6th Annual Council on Autism Services (CAS) Conference, which commenced today in Las Vegas. His presentation is to focus on time-saving strategies for more efficient delivery of autism therapy services. Blackwood will address more than 100 autism therapy executives and program directors attending the invitation-only conference.

ABPathfinder, developer of special education and therapy management solutions, is a co-sponsor of the CAS Conference, which provides an annual platform for individuals committed to high standards of service delivery and evidence-based practices in the autism therapy field. The company seeks to identify common problems facing autism service delivery organizations and provide innovative solutions.

“Most therapists chose their careers because they love to work with clients,” said ABPathfinder CEO and President, Jeff Blackwood. “Unfortunately, the time they spend on paperwork, lesson planning and data collection often takes away from time spent with clients. Our goal is to minimize the time spent on administrative tasks, so therapists can have a larger impact on the lives of individuals with autism.”

The ABPathfinder system reduces time spent on autism therapy paperwork and other administrative tasks, improving the efficiency and effectiveness of therapy programs. The software, available via iPad or Android tablet, enables data collection both online and offline. It also provides detailed analysis of each child’s progress, displayed as interactive graphs that enable therapists and educators to immediately recognize behavior patterns and identify focus areas for improvement. This real-time tracking saves time in performance data analysis and lesson planning, leaving more time to invest in each child.

“We want to improve the performance of therapists and therapy centers as a whole,” said Blackwood. “But we also want to improve the performance of the child. A study we conducted showed that with better therapy tools, such as ABPathfinder, the child’s rate of skill acquisition could increase by up to 20 percent.”
