We are excited to announce that Let’s Go! Plus+ is now available on the Android Marketplace.

Let’s Go! Plus+ is a fun way to help manage your child’s behavior with your smartphone.

Let’s Go! Plus+ allows parents to quickly establish a fun and easy to use behavior management plan when going out to common activities. Our free Let’s Go! app covers five activities: going to a store, going to a restaurant, going in a car, going to worship, and going to a birthday party. Let’s Go! Plus adds three additional activities (going to school, going to a playground and to the doctor), allows you add your own activity and goals and your child’s photo, and has a data base in which you can save your child’s results.

Each of the eight preset activities has four simple behavior goals (such as using a quiet inside voice and staying with a parent) and two individualized rewards (a smaller and a larger one). After the activity, the parent rates the child’s behavior on each goal, and then an animated reward screen shows the child how he or she did on the goals, and if a reward was earned (either the smaller or larger one). Let’s Go! Plus+ also has an option where an individualized activity and goals can be set up by the parent.

Each activity has a link to an additional screen that describes typical reasons for behavior problems and parenting strategies that can be used along with the reward plan. Other special screens provide useful tips on goal setting and rewards strategies.

If your child earns the small or large reward, fun animations play on the result screens.

Many children benefit from clear behavior goals and reward plans. It can be especially helpful for children who have special needs of some kind who struggle with poor impulse control or poor frustration tolerance, or who need frequent coaching on appropriate social skills. Suitable for a child under 10, or for a child over 10 if there are developmental delays or behavioral concerns. Let’s Go! Plus+ is set up to be used with one child at a time. Coming next: Let’s Go! Family Pack which will allow behavior plans for several children in one handy app.

Let’s Go Plus

The image on the left shows a populated chart with a row selected. The selected row is highlighted with a light blue color.

Click on the image to see an enlarged view.

Below is a description of the Add, Sort, Reset, and Delete buttons used in the chart.

Add – Enters the current score into the chart.

Sort – Select a name in the chart and press the Sort button to see all the scores for that name.

Reset – Displays all data in the chart.

Delete – Deletes an entry from the chart. Press the row you wish to delete and select the delete button.

To use the Let’s Go Database, the first step is to add the score. When you reach the end of each activity, you can either return to the Activity Menu without saving the score, or you can enter the score into the chart by pressing the Add button.

Chart information can be sorted by pressing the name on the top of the column (Name, Date, Activity, or Score). A small triangle will appear at the top of the column being sorted. Pressing the name a second time will sort it in the opposite manner (for instance pressing it once will sort it alphabetically beginning with A, pressing it again will sort it alphabetically backwards from Z).

To select a row of data, press the row desired and it will appear highlighted in light blue.

Click on the image to see an enlarged view.


The image on the left is an example of a name that has been selected and then the Sort button has been selected. The information is sorted by score. Notice the small triangle in the Score  column is active. Press the Score title column again to show the data in the reverse order.

Each column name can be pressed in the same manner to show data either in ascending or descending order.




In this example all the data in the chart is sorted by pressing the Name title and the data is sorted alphabetically by name.

Also notice that the name Johnathan is highlighted in light blue and the information for this entry is displayed in the text boxes. From here you can delete the entry by pressing the Delete button, or you can see all the entries in the database with the first name Johnathan by pressing the Sort button.
