The Challenge

Elwyn Israel operates rehabilitative daycare centers across Israel for children with disabilities (toddlers between six months and three years of age). These centers, numbering 22 in total, serve approximately 350 toddlers. The organization’s daycare centers are legally obligated to keep a ‘contact notebook’ in which the teacher writes a daily report for the parent or guardian of each child.

Currently, teachers maintain this ‘contact notebook’ with regular pen and paper.

Challenges with the physical notebook include:

  • The notebook can be lost.
  • Valuable information can be lost when the notebook is switched out.
  • Reporting to divorced parents is difficult with only one notebook.
  • There is an inability to store medical records or share them with professionals.

The process of reporting with the notebook is cumbersome for both parents and caregivers.

The Solution

A mobile app to help parents and caregivers stay connected, which easily and efficiently delivers all reports and updates.
These include continual updates between caregivers and parents such as the child’s eating, activity, health care treatments and more.
The app will make it easy and accessible for the staff to report, and parents will be kept updated at all times and receive a rapid and comprehensive report. Another important advantage of the app is that the child’s medical records will be saved in the cloud.

Pilot and Initial Implementation
The pilot and initial implementation involve 10 families with toddlers with disabilities, aged six months to three years, and the daycare staff. The continued pilot is planned to involve 350 families from Elwyn Israel. This phase will expand the use of the digital communication notebook to a larger group, allowing for more comprehensive testing and feedback, and hopefully leading to improvement and progress in the toddlers’ development.
