Very interesting meeting we had the other week in regards to our agency possibly using tablets instead of laptops! As our agency is beginning to venture into the land of “in-home” supports, we are once again finding ourselves having to use paper documentation as many homes that we serve do not have internet access. Using these tablets will be great as most of the staff working have gotten used to using Therap. In addition, having paper documentation makes it difficult for me as a behavior specialist to do my job outside of that home to do my work and to keep tabs on the behavioral incidents that occur. I guess we have gotten very spoiled with having all the data right at our fingertips! The only trouble I see is that the families still won’t have access as I am assuming that we wouldn’t be leaving the tablets at the house.
Anyway…hope everyone is enjoying the wonderful weather!
