Our team did research and rewrote a whole system from scratch. We used a CMS backend (Laravel/PHP & MySQL running on Rackspace-managed AWS servers in the US, EU, and CA regions). It was developed upon clinical research and therapy for empowering children and adults with cognitive disabilities to acquire and reinforce skills necessary to achieve independence across all domains, such as adult services, employment, independent living, behavioral health, schools, and education.
We chose this technology as the most suitable and popular, with a good reputation and support to make the system maintainable and scalable. We also used a microservice architecture to improve the apps` performance.
The app is used by organizations and institutions that help their students with varied learning needs. It features three roles: managers, caregivers, and learners.
Each organization can create personal tasks for learners to complete. Teachers can upload videos and send them to an individual student or the whole class. Each video can be private (for internal use only) or public. For example, when the task is pretty common (such as tying shoelaces), the video can be uploaded to a library and published for sharing.
Our solution is HIPAA compliant, which guarantees high-level protection of users` personal health information.
The client received three modern standalone Web, iOS, and Android applications with different levels of user hierarchy: managers, caregivers, and learners.
Managers monitor the activity and achievements of all users.
Caregivers create and watch tailored support programs for learners.
Learners access 24/7 support via their personal smart device.
The app is stable, easy to scale, shows good performance, and is convenient for the final users.
