NEW YORK, Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Eli Adler has created and launched a brand-new child development app for parents. The free app allows parents to capture via video and content all the important milestones in their child's early development from birth to age five. This information is then available on the app to show their healthcare professional with a touch of a button or shared through email.
Dr. Adler created the app to solve a common challenge in the healthcare field. He notes that hundreds of millions of dollars are spent evaluating and treating children with development delays. All too often, Dr. Adler says, children are either initially misdiagnosed or do not receive a diagnosis until years later. This is because parents usually cannot provide physicians and therapists with an accurate history of their child's milestone development.
But now, the Childstones app changes all of that. The app will organize and store these short diagnostic videos, which are easily made accessible to a healthcare professional who may need to go back in time and study the child's progression in speech, physical or social skills. Any deviation from normal development will be preserved on footage. By having a diagnostic video collection taken over time, a professional will have the complete milestone developmental history that can be studied and used for diagnosis.
"This is the only app of this kind available in the market today, and we are excited to provide parents this innovative and effective tool for tracking their child's development," says Dr. Adler. "Our goal is to change the field of developmental delay diagnostics by using a simple platform to bridge a gap in children's historical data. Every child in this country has an immunization and health record. There is no reason why every child should not have a preserved developmental record."
The Childstones app has a number of features including free sign-up, alerts, use for multiple children, video, and more. To learn more about the app or download, visit Childstones.org.
Childstones lets parents capture all of the important moments of their child's development, which are then available at the touch of a button, wherever and whenever they need them. For more information, visit Childstones.org.
