Just the other day I was telling an OT I met recently, let’s call him Dave, a little about Timocco and how his clients can use it at home. Dave said something that really struck me;
Me: You can assign homework via Timocco and see a child’s performance for each task even though you’re not there with them.
Dave: That’s fantastic, now I can finally know for sure which parents are stretching the truth about their kids home therapy exercises!
At the moment we’re right on the heels of releasing Tim-Factor, a new feature that shows how much practice time you generate outside the clinic and Dave’s comment really hit home to me as a parent because I’ve definitely been caught in that little white lie myself. If I had known my son’s therapist was watching, we probably would’ve gotten a lot more homework done over the years!
With Tim-Factor, we set out to measure just how much home-play therapists are generating outside the clinic but I suspect that therapists will see those numbers growing as parents can now truly be held accountable for making sure their kids have a window of practice time.
I told Dave it would be great to see how Tim-factor motivates him, the parents and the kids he’s working with – I’m looking forward to seeing the Tim-Factor statistics roll in and actually being able to measure the impact therapists will have on their client communities.
I invite you to join us in our therapy experiment and see the results for yourself!
