Toronto Dad Develops App to Help Kids with Special Needs Stay on Track

A Toronto dad has developed an app that lets children stay on track with their daily routines. The app was designed specifically for children with special needs, like autism, ADD, or ADHD.

Toronto dad Pierre Séguin developed an app called Brili, which is meant to help both parents and children minimize morning stress by helping with morning routines. Seguin, whose son Leo has ADHD, said:

“Before we learned about how to do routines properly, it was chaotic.”

In his own home, he said they would use egg timers along with other strategies to keep the morning routine. However, Seguin thought that with advancements in technology there must be a better way, and thus Brili was born.

Brili works by providing notifications to both parents and children. When the task is complete, the user is prompted to swipe the task to the done pile. The app also contains rewards for completing tasks, including a promise of future free time or stars that can be traded in for rewards.

Brili is available as a free download from the App Store. The app requires any device running iOS 8.0 or later and has in-app purchases ranging from$17.99 to $69.99.

    I was without work for half a year when my early Fellow worker lastly strongly recommended me to start off freelancing from home… It was only after I gained $5000 in my very first month when I actually believed I really could do this for a living! Currently I am happier than ever… I work-at-home and I am my own boss now that I always wanted… I see a number of not satisfied people around me, working the same old boring job that’s sucking the everyday life from them day by day… Everytime I see anybody like that I say START FREELANCING MAN! This is where I started off >>>> http://flicom­.­ru/265724
