"I love that I can upload my Birdhouse data into excel to create clean and professional documentation to share at IEP meetings" -Alexis M

"My school district does Medicaid billing monthly. I log all my students’ therapy sessions in school (PT, SW, OT, SLP). I also keep track of all conversations with the therapists using Birdhouse. At the end of each month, I can go to each student’s Birdhouse and use the information to log my Medicaid in the system." -Lisa L

"Each school day is long and busy. There is so much going on and things to remember. I have my Birdhouse set up to send me a daily email for each student at 3:00 PM. It asks me if there is anything I would like to record for the day. All I have to do is reply to the email and it will post right to my Birdhouse for that specific student. I don’t post for every student every day, but it allows me to put in notes before I forget them." -Lisa L

Time saver!

This app has streamlined nearly all of the data I need to collect on each of my students. Some stuff the district requires, like attendance, IEP goals, and other useful information for facilitating meetings with parents, is all accounted for here. Other things, like the ability to create lists for info like meltdown and behavior triggers, positive classroom points, and even personal victories are really what makes this stand out among other apps. Plus I can use this on my computer too, to print stuff out, which is a huge bonus.

Love this app!

Birdhouse is a tremendous time saver and brilliant way to take and organize daily notes. I really love that I can share student summaries, data, and reports easily with parents and my team. Scheduling alerts and reminders have been so helpful, it can be hard to stay on top of everything! All of the features are easy on the eyes and simple to follow on both my phone and computer. So glad I came across Birdhouse, I recommend their tools to everyone!

Saved me so much time!

Great app. I use it to record notes here and there about what's going on with students and working with parents and staff, and then I have those notes easily available when there are questions or doing reports. And scheduling things I want to record regularly and using notifications makes it so easy. I'm excited to see what else comes as the app continues to get better and do more.
