TaskAnalysis: new independence for your peeps!

Hey Tek-Ninjas, I am a graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, and yes, I'm a fan. But every now and then, some really good stuff "might" happen elsewhere.

In today's blog post I want to share with you an app I stumbled across called "ClemsonLIFE Task Analysis". Grudgingly I have to acknowledge that it is made by some very smart folks at Clemson U 😁.

This flexible app allows you to create scaffolding supports for anything you wish, allowing you to incorporate picture/video cues to support the process of initiating and completing any given task. Tasks can be broken down into manageable steps whereby users can access picture, text, and audio support, along with video prompting and video modeling supports all within one app. 

TaskAnalysis also works on GPS location and will automatically populate tasks based on the user's current location. For example, if your end-user is on a job site, say the local animal shelter, the tasks that come up are the ones made at that site... so you might see tasks such as animal feeding or walking, but not home laundry tasks.  

There have been a number of apps that have offered similar features, but TaskAnalysis is incredibly robust and flexible.  I really like the geolocation function, and really mind-blowingly, it is FREE. It is only available on iOS. 

This app may allow your end-users a marked increase in the level of independence they experience to completee the tasks that are of importance to them and their care-givers. 

Happy Therapy!!
