Educators and therapists able to simultaneously input data for group of students

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (Feb. 6, 2014) – ABPathfinder, LLC, developer of special education and therapy management solutions, announces a new group data collection feature for its ABPathfinder data management and assessment software. Designed especially for special education and autism therapy, this purpose-built capability enables educators and therapists to log data and track progress for multiple students simultaneously. The company unveiled the update today at the TCEA 2014 Convention & Exposition.

“This update gives paraprofessionals the means to collect data on multiple children at once, which no other data collection system offers,” said ABPathfinder CEO and President, Jeff Blackwood. “We want to support educators in helping children with developmental disorders live more social and independent lives by crafting a simple, effective tool to enhance special education.”

Combining the new group data collection feature with ABPathfinder's flexible online/offline input capability, users are able to record student data with or without an Internet connection. The software collects, graphs and analyzes behavioral development data, recognizing patterns immediately and identifying focus areas for improvement. Offering support to all team members of a child’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP), the ABPathfinder system reduces time spent on paperwork and other administrative tasks, so that educators and therapists are able to spend more time with each child.

“Oftentimes schools are so overwhelmed with meeting the minimum requirements of an IEP that they don’t focus on the long-term outcomes,” said Blackwood. “Our goal is to augment special education by providing tools that can track analytical goals, so educators can predict, and ultimately achieve, better student outcomes.”

ABPathfinder is available via Android and Apple devices, giving more educators and therapists the freedom to record group data in the classroom, or any other location they’re administering therapy. The software provides the flexibility to use customized therapy methods, and offers consistent training and technical support to the IEP team.
