How is GAINS® different from computer-based record-keeping programs?
GAINS® provides real time decision support for instructors through each complex ABA therapy step, like a navigation system. Every individual learns differently and at their own pace. GAINS® remembers exactly where a learner is in any given program, making instruction easy for a diverse team. Just open GAINS® and pick up where the learner left off with no disruption in learning. GAINS® even updates targets and tracks mastery automatically. GAINS® supports teachers and caregivers, so they can help individuals lead more social and productive lives.
Does GAINS® replace clinicians and staff?
No. GAINS® does not replace clinicians and staff, it merely assists them in providing quality ABA therapy programs for the learners they serve. GAINS® takes care of routine work and allows them to focus on their clients.
What are the components of GAINS®?
GAINS® consist of three components:
- Algorithms and database housed in a secure, HIPAA-compliant server the cloud
- A supervisor portal which allows clinicians to manage staff, create student curricula, track student progress, and generate reports
- An instructor interface which supports an instructor during ABA therapy and automatically records granular data via a smart phone or tablet and bone-conduction Bluetooth headphones
How does GAINS® work?
Using our secure supervisor portal, clinicians can manage staff, create student curricula and track progress, and generate reports. Then via a smartphone or tablet, our user-friendly app guides instructors to implement ABA programs with fidelity, collect behavioral data, create session notes, and keep team members up-to-date with in-app comments
