Data Collection

How It Works

This real-time data collection system is beneficial to both students and staff. The application opens doors to better communication among team members and makes valuable information accessible by every staff member involved in a child’s daily life.

The application is simple to use. Every aspect of a child’s day is easily tracked by a series of taps. The data is instantly processed and available for professional staff to analyze. This technology gives direct care staff more time, improves analysis of each individual’s education plan and improves effectiveness in programming.

Up-to-the-minute data is readily available for each child’s team of psychologists, behavior analysts, therapists, teachers and medical staff to analyze and improve programming. At most organizations, data is tracked by handwritten tally marks, which takes weeks to enter into a computer. This process creates “lag” time where professionals are analyzing old data for student programming. The Heartspring Technology Project has improved efficiency and resulted in better programming for our students.


Day-to-day information is available for each student. Information from schedules to emergency contacts to Student Support Plans is accessible through this app.


Multiple behaviors, like aggression and self-injurious behavior, can be tracked with a simple tap. Positive behaviors are also tracked for communication/speech goals and successful prompts, among others.


Staff can run and track various goals according to each student’s individualized Education Program (IEP). Professional staff can then access data to review progress over a period of time.
