BEHAVEWRITE – A POWERFUL NEW MEASURING TOOL FOR BEHAVIOR

BehaveWrite is a powerful new app that aides teachers and others who collect behavior data to be more consistent in data collection and reporting.

BehaveWrite is an innovative app to streamline and simplify behavior data collection. Now data can be collected instantly from any smartphone device, iPod, iPad, or computer, time and date stamped, and recorded on a secured web based server.

The app offers teachers and other professionals the ease of quickly and accurately recording inappropriate or challenging behaviors. This program interfaces easily with all state requirements for Positive Behavior Supports, data collection, and interventions for behavior.

Data can be easily edited, notes can be included for additional information and accuracy, and Functional Behavioral Assessments can be completed. Behavior Reports can be generated in ¼ the time, including color charts for filtering specific behaviors, time of day, day of week, or place. Instantly viewable are the behaviors recorded and by whom, and interventions implemented within the last two weeks. The tiers for behaviors are determined by the data recorded and are shown on a tiered pyramid in this same view.

BehaveWrite interfaces easily with all state requirements for Positive Behavior Supports, data collection, and interventions for behavior.
